On Friday “ArlingtonRV” and I flew our RV-8s to Richland (KRLD) for some Jambalaya at Ann’s Best Creole (check out his video in his separate post). Flew back via Grant County Airport (KMWH) in Moses Lake to see how many 737 Max’s Boeing still has parked there. There were many, and more than I expected.

Mt. Stuart and the Stuart Range:



Many 737 Max’s parked by Boeing are still at Grant County Airport (KMWH).



East ramp:



South ramp:



The southern part of Moses Coulee, cutting through the plateau between Ephrata and Wenatchee, with Mt. Rainier and Mt. Adams in the background. If you know where to look Mt. St. Helens is between them.



Glacier Peak on the right with Mt. Baker (left) and Mt. Shuksan (center) in the background:



Some FAA folks doing their thing:



GPS track:




A nice day to fly across the Cascades!

I got my -7 back from Flying Colors of Texas, and they did a spectacular job!

I was able to fly some Young Eagles at EAA Chapter 14 (KSDM) on Saturday. After all of the rainy weather, it was clear and sunny. I flew two missions in the RV-9A, then flew back home up the coast over KSAN through the VFR corridor.


Flew Young Eagles and had lunch at Brown Field.


Coronado Islands in Mexico.


Balboa Park next to downtown San Diego.


La Jolla Cove and Mt. Soledad.
