Tailwheel Training & a Whoppyjawed Pattern

It had been two weeks and I have not cursed JJ's name as the sun rose. It was time to break that dry spell. I was cursing his name, still, as I pulled up to FDK at 6:30 this morning. Time had got in the way of instrument recurrence training, but we would not be taking the Cessna up today. A ruby red Decathlon had just come out of annual and was ready to spread it's wings.

Tailwheel training lesson 1 had begun!

A Flying Dog Teaches at Annapolis Libraries

On Saturday, May 9th, Turbo the Flying Dog landed at the Broadneck and Eastport-Annapolis libraries in Annapolis, MD. In case you haven't read already, Turbo is the star of his very own book series. Book one, Turbo the Flying Dog has become an instant hit with the pilot community, telling the tale of a shelter mutt who must reach his new home by airplane. Saturday, children and adults alike were able to hear his story read by the authors and got to meet the stars of the books themselves.

WW2 Flyover

I had been counting down for weeks and the once in a lifetime experience was finally here, the Arsenal of Democracy flyover over Washington, D.C. From trainers, to fighters, to bombers, vintage warbirds flew over the mall this Friday. I enjoyed the view along with my husband, friends, and thousands of others on a hot and sunny day. It is probably something that I will not be able to witness in my lifetime again and I am blessed to have been able to be there. Enjoy some photos below:
