A Beautiful Day at the Field

A beautiful day at the field today! Sunny with an occasional light breeze to cool things off. There was lots of activity at the field including a giant tow plane pulling aloft some absolutely gorgeous sailplanes. This was the first time I have seen that in action and it was quite impressive.

I got in a bunch of flights on my P-51. By the 4th or 5th flight, I finally started to get my head on right and feel a bit settled in. For me, I know I am at that point when I am thinking more about what I want the plane to do than what my thumbs are doing!

first flight of 2016 Season

I got out to the field for the first time this season with my PZ P-51. It was bit windy with some pretty strong gusts up in the 25 mph range. I really had a hard time settling in, so I gave up after two flights. I’m glad I went out and definitely now have the itch to get back to the field again, hopefully with a bit less wind though …
