Angel Flight October 18th, 2018 (Raleigh-Durham International to Baltimore/Washington International)

     We had a great flight today down to Raleigh-Durham International, where we picked up our Angel Flight passenger, Consuela, and her mom, Diane. Our flight conditions heading down to NC at 8000 feet were very good and the winds were on our tail, helping us along very nicely.

    Consuela and her mom, Diane, were waiting for us with big smiles and hugs, all ready to go! After our greetings, we loaded up and were on our way to Baltimore Maryland. Our flight conditions up to BWI at 9000 feet were again, very good, and the views along this route are always fantastic! (as long as we are not in the clouds).

     We landed on runway 33R and soon were inside Signature Flight Support where Consuela and her mom arranged for their ground transportation and John and I put in an order for fuel. After taking a group photo, we gave our goodbyes and told Consuela and Daine that we would see them tomorrow (we will be taking them back home).

     On our flight back home we enjoyed our I.A.P. (In Air Picnic) at 8000 feet while ATC gave us a very nice shortcut. Back at home base, we made a visual approach, landing on runway 22 with calm winds. As I tucked 49Bravo back into her hanger, Captain John prepared the coffee, which we both enjoyed very much in our “Pilots Lounge” while doing paperwork for the day. Then soon we were on our way for one of the most dangerous parts of the day….. the drive home!  (As we walked past 49Bravo heading out, I believe for sure I saw her smile, knowing that we would be back to get her in the morning for another flight!)

Following are photos of our flight…. Have a “Great Day” all!

  3. The pictures of Solomon’s Island and Point Lookout bring back fond memories. We use to go to there every summer to visit friends. I was always fascinated with Solomon’s Island. Needless to say, it has grown!
