Default One more milestone

Well, another RV Grin....

Some of you might remember this shot. I took this the week before my son headed off to university. He helped me build this flying carpet....



Well, Ben decided to move to Marseille, France to get his degree instead of staying within easy flying distance...so C-GOGO has been flying for a year, and he had not had his first flight!

We took care of that this holiday. The sky opened up yesterday ....



Yep...he was happy. So was I. I was really looking forward to sharing this experience with him





And finally....the famous RV GRIN



Thanks again Ben! Glad I could share this with you. I guess Im going to have to add extended range tanks!

Awesome pics, Chris.

I saw that mound of ice and snow in front of your hangar door yesterday. I was thinking it was going to be a bit of hard labor to dig it open...

Default Congrats Chris!

It must be incredibly satisfying to share the "RV grin" with your son. Congrats and Happy New Year.
