Default Evening Bliss....

My project at work is a month away from Go-Live, meaning long days and long nights at work. A status call was cancelled at 4:30 and I decided that I had had enough...off to the hangar! If traffic is light, I just might make it in time to catch the sunset. I just had the camera on the phone, but....traffic was light!!!

The view from the run-up pad was sweet!


In the air it only got better.....


30 min with the plane can fix the whole week.....


Attitude adjusted!
