After enduring numerous rides in various rental aircraft, it was time for Kristy to get her first ride in Warrior 481. Dave was trying to convince her that, though I chose, purchased, and flew Warrior 481, our new acquisition was in fact her airplane.
We flew along the shoreline of Lake Michigan one evening with Dave in formation. Arjo rode back seat with Dave and took all the photos of us in our new airplane. I think the ride went well; blowing up the above photo will show that Kristy is actually smiling. Whew...
Here we are, southbound over Saugatuck, MI. Even during that ride, I suspect Kristy had no idea how much a part of our lives Warrior 481 would eventually become.
