Take Your Coworkers to the Airport Day, 2004

Date Aircraft Route of Flight Time (hrs) Total

N21481 0D1 (South Haven, MI) - Local flights 2.4 232.5

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.
