Canyon flight


Dave Dugas
 

Not able to attend the zoom meeting this morning.... reason; Rod and I just returned from a beautiful flight through the man-made canyons of NYC. We flew the VFR corridor down the Hudson River south past the statue of liberty, did a 180 and flew north past the world trade center, and returned to KORE... total time 2.9 hours. Rod's flight time was about 15 minutes less. Great conditions and not as busy as I expected, much less than KOSH. I'll try to get some footage together. Counting on Rod for that. This has been on our bucket list since we started flying, and was kind of last minute mission. There surely must of been a few "WTH is that thing up there" statements made as we flew over. I'll be on the lookout for the YouTube recording of Sanjay's presentation. Hope to see y'all soon at the FOD in Enid.

Some may have thought you were drones. Sounds like an awsome flight. If you like to fly canyons, we have a hundred natural ones in NM.

That sounds like great fun!  I thought about that when we were headed back from your place, but we were anxious to get home.

Dave, if you're wondering why Orange is a little more warm since you returned, it's because of all the surveillance satellites now pointed at you.

Sounds like one hell of a time.  Really looking forward to the vids.

Dave,

Great flight report I probably will never do that flight. I have flown past the casinos of Laughlin on downwind to the Bullhead tandem wing fly-in.

Snapped this canyon photo on the way to the fly-in 2003.

Hope to see all of you at Enid.

Beautiful picture Charlie. Thank you. Nothing can come close to nature's beauty that we are fortunate enough to see from the air.
