This morning, in honor of Rosh Chodesh Adar, a month in which we increase our happiness, Trish made green scrambled eggs to enhance our sense of whimsy:
I took my wing over to Michelle’s wing shop for repair. A wing was being inspected:
Back on Day 861, I had laid out the wing and tried to kite it up to verify that the lines weren’t tangled. A twig attached to the ground snagged the wing as I tried to kite the wing. With the wing held back, my pulling on the lines caused a seam to fail where a “C” line attaches to the wing:
I called Michelle and she told me how to patch the wing, which I did:
Today, Michelle said the patch looked good but we decided to fix the wing by sewing it anyway. I would post a photo of the repaired area, but it now looks like all the other “C” line attachment points so I’m not sure which one it is. Thanks Michelle!
I photographed M’s overstuffed Junior Ranger wall hanging:
Tonight I launched milestone flight #100, an RV storage area in the background:
PPC pilot Ron took off right after me:
My goal for the flight was to find a nearby concrete arrow, the base for the 1930s LA-A #68 navigation beacon. I spotted it along the ridge directly above my feet:
It was exciting and appropriate to “discover” this relic of aviation history from the air:
I would have flown lower to get a better view, but strong winds were creating turbulent conditions along the ridge, so I opted to stay up high.
I flew back to Michelle’s field. Kirk was just taking off as I flew over:
I checked out a nearby radio controlled airplane field. They must fly some really large R/C planes here:
Hooray for 100 post-training flights!
