Dave and I hosted a cookout at the airport for friends and coworkers to get a taste for airport life. All photos on this page were provided by Cap'n Dave.
Headsets and intercoms can provide surprisingly endless entertainment, even on the ground.
A grill is critical to the success of any cookout. "If you grill it, they will come." But it helps if a good grillmaster is assigned to the task (which we discovered to our woe when Arjo did the cooking). Cap'n Dave was assigned this duty thereafter.
For pilots and non-pilots alike, grading landings is an essential aspect of the airport experience. Here, the group watches Dave three-point the Decathlon on the grass. I don't remember what the score was, probably lower than he deserved. You know, just because.
With a "mighty roar", the sound of Kent's departure preparations in two-seven-uniform officially signals that the party is drawing to a close.
"There I was, 1000 feet up and inverted when the control stick snapped off in my hand..."
Mild exaggeration is par for the course when hangar flying at the end of the day.
