Italy Valley with the Rochester Area Flyers
Thanks to Mukrim I got to go flying in the Finger Lakes again, this time with much more success.
Total flying time: 2 hours 31 minutes.
After a dismal wet and cold Saturday, we were rewarded with a very enjoyable afternoon flight. Doug, Mukrim, Linda, Mark and I all flew, but Mukrim amassed the most air time and the best story with a cravatte and a bit of an incident. A great weekend for me to start the 2007 season..
Watch the video here. Read Linda's write up here.
Open the GPS track logs in Google Earth: Saturday (16 mins), Sunday - 1st flight (35 mins), Sunday - 2nd flight (26 mins), Sunday - 3rd flight (74 mins), The hike back to launch!
Mukrim, Mark and Linda prepare for a pleasant afternoon flight.
