Default Breakfast at Martha's Vineyard

It was one of those perfect half-Mondays. Why half? Because I work second shift every other Monday.

Hungry.Beat the traffic early morning, jump inside RV and back the same direction I drove an hour ago





Kennedy controller saw me bouncing under Bravo at couple hundred feet and offered his smooth airspace at 1400'. Much nicer our ATC are the best.









The breeze was so stiff I sailed eastbound at 2100 rpm making 160 knots. Passed Block Island and No-Man Land.

Vineyard Tower wasn't busy. Couple jets inbound, a Pilatus outbound and half dozen little guys on the way from different directions. Short approach granted made first taxiway and parked.





Next to this beauty.







Home style terminal.







Plane View Restaurant. As the name said - plane view.







No food picture. What you want for $6.29 at Martha's? A salmon BBQ?

The way back was slow. Slow I mean real slow like 90 kts. I never fight headwinds I enjoy them. More flight time in logbook.







Foxwood Casino.







Airport #1








Airport #2







Landed at Airport #3 (Orange County KMGJ) The purpose of landing was you know what.







Next stop Aeroflex-Andover 12N. Beautiful spot. Air carrier. A Cub was doing airwork and suggested other runway.







Landed at 1/3 plenty of runway to stop. Couple guys are fishing from inflatable down there by threshold.







Time to vroom back. Work is work. It keeps my tanks full.
