The Fly-by

Dan Leveritt and Dirk Laukien took me up from the Brenham airport for a fly-over of the farm on Friday afternoon. It was a spectacularly clear Fall day. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful clear time to fly. We were in Dan's new 2007 Cessna Skylane. Sure was a lot nicer than the 1959 version I took a lesson in (and determined that I'd rather drive). The "glass cockpit" looked like something out of a passenger jet. Very modern aircraft and a lot of fun to ride in the back seat. I wasn't fond of Dirk working on "leaning" up the engine and tweaking the propeller during flight. I'd just as soon eat up gasoline than to mess with it, but he is a very experienced pilot and I soon got use to his fiddling with things. We had a great day.  The farm seemed so unreal from the air. Just seems like so much work on the ground and so easily maintained from the air:-)
