Another Double Angel Flight Mission tomorrow (Friday, August 1oth)

     Friday morning we will be departing home base Luray between 0930 and 10000 heading to Charlottesville VA to pick up our two campers we flew there last Saturday. We then will fly them back to their parents waiting for them in Pittsburgh PA.  This will make a total of eight Angel Flight Missions in seven days!

     Our double Angel Flight Mission on Wednesday to take our passenger Elaine back home from Northeast Philly down to Asheville NC had us dodging quite a few storms (we poked into and around the back side of one getting into Asheville).  Overall our ride was very smooth, landing at Asheville (with storms all around) at about 6:00pm. Then, after another strong storm passed over the airport, we departed Asheville in light rain and headed home (landing back home a little after sunset) Following are some photos of our flight to Asheville…… mostly of the weather.

     Our total flight time for Tuesday and Wednesdays four Angel Flight Missions neared 14 hours covering over 1500 nautical miles.

Have a Great Day All….. and thank you for following our flights!

    I’m sure Wednesday’s flight was a, “Bumpy ride”, and then some. That lake was really churning…Safe flight and landing on Friday, gentlemen.
