Default #3 grandson's first flight!!

Yesterday afternoon I took my grandson Gage up for his first flight.
We both had a great time!

While building I mostly dreamed about places Cindy and I would fly.
I never realized how good it would feel to take my grandkids flying.
I can't describe the feeling.

Gage loved the intercom, and on final was singing the ABC song.

Looks like Gage was having a great time with Grandpa. Gee you don't look old enough to have grandchildren.

Default Way cool

Hey Mark. That is just way too cool! I know you are feeling good. I still remember when I saw you project being built and then the ride in Pineville. Looks like Gage enjoyed it. I can't wait to take my seven grandkids flying.

Looks like a RV grin if I ever saw one.

This is the stuff that keeps me moving on this project. I have a 1-1/2 year old granddaughter and I can't wait to take her up! Hopefully, she'll have a sibling at some time in the future and then I get to do it all over again. Love being a "papa" and can't wait to take them flying.
