Sometimes the weather doesn’t cooperate and you end up fogged in. As Steve Ellis found out, though, that doesn’t have to mean a trip to the airport is wasted. He took this misty photo of his RV-4 on the ground at on a trip to Vero Beach, Florida, which captures the early morning solitude of an airport – complete with a full moon overhead.
It’s an airport that should be on every pilot’s bucket list: First Flight Airport at Kill Devil Hills, NC. Steve Ellis captured the sight from his RV-4 on a day trip to the airport, which perfectly shows the Wright Brothers monument in the foreground and the runway behind it.
This is what flying is all about. Steve Ellis loves to give airplane rides to kids (he’s working on his 3rd guest logbook), and this early morning flight with 12-year old Luke Kallaher was just about perfect. In this week’s Friday Photo, you can enjoy the smile of a kid at home in a J-3 Cub with the windows open.
