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.
This blog is to chronicle my attempt to restore a 1972 Piper Cherokee 140e. This plane is the 'dog' of the airport and has been sitting untouched for 10 years. I purchased the plane and am attempting to restore it to flyable condition.

The coolest picture
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
Just checking out the clouds
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.
Finally some new headsets
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.
Beautiful Cross Country
What a beautiful day for the LKR crew to fly out.
Did a great 5 ship flight over to CDH and up to PYG and back for fun and fellowship. Was a beautiful day and everyone did great!
