We had amazing weather this weekend which was awesome, as we were hoping to fly to Exeter. They were having a COPA fly-in breakfast. It was a rather smooth flight there, and took us about an hour and fifteen minutes. As usual, Donkay joined us:
It was a little hard to spot the runway, as it’s a grass strip. We were also trying to keep track of all of the other planes in the circuit. Mike took some pics of us coming in:
Lots of folks were outside, watching all the planes arrive:
We had a nice time. I had a great chat with my friend Tom and met up with someone from Welland.
Heading back, we flew over this yellow dude:
Once back in St. Catharines, we followed another plane in from downwind to base to final, but then a glider approached to land on one of the smaller runways. It was requested that I then follow the glider to some degree in order to give him time to land. I ended up doing some funky turns in order to give the glider more time:
The glider landed then we came in for our own landing.
Soon after we parked, we were blessed with seeing the Lancaster doing a low and over:
Another nice surprise was when this bad boy flew over where we were later that afternoon:
Awesome day and we look forward to all of the upcoming fly-ins this summer.
Back at home, we watched a movie at my place. Mike put his cup of water down – big mistake (as it always is):
Nice of Abby to clean Mya while she was drinking.
Today’s symptoms: I didn’t feel too well today. I woke up at 3:00am and wasn’t able to fall back to sleep. Had a fairly bad headache and was really fatigued all day. On a bright note, most of the pain in my hands is gone!
