From a Flight on Sunday, June 10, 2012...

When contacting me about a particular photo(s), always refer to the
Post Date and Photo NumberNote that photos in my older posts
are not numbered and thus you must manually count them so I know which photo you
are referring to.  Photo #1 is always at the top of the posting.


This is Part 2 of an incredible weekend of aviating.  Today, June 10th, 2012, I was flying southeast to Robert J. Miller Airpark in Toms River, NJ to take my Mom for a flight around the area.  Next was to fly back northwest to Trenton-Robbinsville airport and take Pops for a flight around the patch, finally returning home in the late afternoon before the thunderstorms crept in.  The air was very still and this lasted for most of the day; a rarity indeed...

As always, I hope you enjoy "The View from Above"
