For the first time since my training and for the first time ever in the Cherokee, I was able to sneak down to the airport at dusk and get in some late evening / night flying. It was a beautiful calm and clear night, perfect flying weather.

So was just taking a friend to pick up his plane after it's annual and on the way back we flew some formation and he captured the coolest picture I have ever had taken of the plane.
This is just the most awesome picture, turn to final on Rwy6
Sometimes you just gotta get up in the air and play around the clouds. I'm not a religious person but there is something special (almost spiritual) that happens when you are up flying around clouds and such and you realize that no other human past/present/future will ever see the exact same sight that you are seeing.
It's almost like the entire universe is putting on a show just for you to enjoy, and for those few moments you feel like you can do anything.
Well I finally broke down and bought my first ever pair of brand new headsets. I picked up a set of ANR headsets from Gulf Coast Avionics and I cannot begin to stress to you how much of a game changer this is.
I no longer get fatigued after flying and my head doesn't feel like it's in a vice. I should have done this 5 years ago.

Everything went well other than it was over 95 degrees and the heat was stifling. Had a nice lesson in high density altitude as the DA had creeped up to almost 3000 feet. The plane performs totally different at that DA (as was expected)
There were many repairs that had been done over the years, I removed all these failing repairs and redid the entire thing with more stability.

It was very annoying when trying to quickly glance at the comms because it would cover up what comm you were transmitting on.
Now that I've removed that and gotten all the residual glue off I'm not sure what I wanted to do to refresh the panel?
Here is what it looks like now.

It was a really great time, the winds were a little rough earlier in the day so we waited until around 6pm for the air to cool and the winds to die down. Was smooth as glass on a nice spring day.
