The weather and my symptoms lucked out on Sunday and I was able to go for a flight. Mike and I first went up overhead the airport and did some aerobatics. I had done some without him my previous two flights and it was the first time doing them in about two months. I was so rusty. Not dangerous-rusty, but not exactly audience worthy!
A couple spins and a meh hammerhead (second one may need time to load):
On Sunday, however, I tried a snap roll as soon as I was up to 4000′ and it was great! Phew! And then a roll, which was previously more like a deformed egg – good again. Got the kinks out of the next bunch as well. I guess I really was rusty and probably overthinking things too. So I’m very relieved that it’s back to the way it was a couple months ago.
After some aerobatics, we just flew along the canal and around Niagara for a bit:
Two ships in the canal at once:
Heading out over the Lake Erie shoreline:
I love the ship snail trail:
Passed a local helicopter on the way back to the hangar:
Great flight. After we got home, we had to go out for cake. It was Pinky’s birthday and she let us eat it on her behalf:
You know the weather is getting nice when the kitties start venturing out onto the balcony:
Mya and Boo snuggled on the couch:
Then Boo became nosy:
We had our Recreational Aircraft Association meeting last night. We all went home with a little Easter treat (from the Club itself, I just picked them up):
They jingled all the way to the meeting, as each one has a bell around its neck.
Today’s symptoms: Been having a bad couple days – back to the pretty severe weakness and fatigue. Bunny paws crossed that tomorrow will be much better!
