Spring Cleaning

Finally got around to a project I'd been meaning to do for a while now.  I finally broke down and took the vinyl/fake leather cushion thing off the plastic panel.  The glue holding the piece on had really started breaking down (and had gotten worse as the plane was used) and the piece had started to droop down. 

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.

Flight to the Runway Cafe at GMU

What a great flight last weekend to GMU and the Runway Cafe!  Flew a 3 ship formation down to Greenville Downtown to enjoy a delicious meal and check out some cool airplanes.

A great evening to fly

What a wonderful evening to fly around.  We flew a 3 Cherokee Formation from KLKR to KFDW and back.

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.
