These pictures were taken Sunday. All I was trying to do was familiarize myself with the preflight checklist, as well as get an idea of the feel of the plane. All this was done, just sitting in there by myself. Notice, though, that I had my trusty coffee mug. Would I take it, even if it was empty, you betcha! It is really an extension of my hand. Noel and I will be flying on wednesday, slow flight, traffic patterns, and filing a flight plan.
