The view: An advancing storm
The pilot: Rob Schneeweiss
The airplane: 2006 Cessna 172SP, N5522S
The mission: My long solo cross-country on June 19, 2019
The memory: I was on the first leg of my long solo cross-country, where the route was FMY-OBE-PGD-FMY. The storm was forecast to stay west of OBE, and this picture was taken as the storm cut off my path to OBE. I had clear skies to my right, so I executed a 180-degree turn to the right and returned to FMY from the southwest while remaining clear of clouds. I repeated the flight the following day to completion.
