The view: Killingworth, Connecticut
The pilot: Lindsay Petre
The aircraft: Robinson R22
The mission: Long solo cross country for private pilot certification
The memory: Nearing the end of my rotorcraft private add-on, I accomplished the three-point solo cross-country. With the collective friction on, I had a hand free to grab a couple of photos. This one was actually taken by accident, but I thought it was kind of a fun view.

- Friday Photo: shiny shoes - March 6, 2020
The shoes are interesting, but the socks are over the top!
Lol thanks. What would shiny shoes be without skully socks?
Your shiny shoes picture brought back memories of my days as a line Captain since I was known for my shiny shoes ( actually side zip calfskin black boots ). Instead of off the rack uniforms I had mine ” bespoke ” or tailor made in London. Those wonderful tailors would even sew a crease into the trousers so they never became baggy from long sitting on transatlantic flights. I was meticulous in my dress because I was the same way in my flight preparations and everything to do with flying. Nowadays I suppose that sounds over the top but it served me well over a long career and I was proud to wear the colours of the airlines I worked for.
