From a Flight on Sunday, March 11, 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 our first flight after the time has changed, and with more light in the evenings, this equates to a longer flying day. Now if we could just get those Avgas prices to lower a bit, more in line with car gas prices, it wouldn't be so painful after the flight. Regardless, fuel was burnt today and as usual, the rewards were great with clear skies and endless views. I hope you enjoy today's selection of (39) aerial photos:
