The view: A stunning rainbow just off the wing
The pilot: Ethan Levi
The photographer: Elizabeth Levi, with her iPhone
The airplane: 1980 Mooney 231
The mission: Flying back from Grants Pass, Oregon (3S8) and getting vectored to the ILS 13R approach into Hillsboro, Oregon (KHIO).
The memory: A nice ending to a flight that started in the clear in southern Oregon and into clouds as we flew into a low pressure area in the Portland area. The rainbow nicely marked the moods of all aboard.
