It was another beautiful day for flying… but then, any day that ends in Y is a beautiful day for flying ! This Angel Flight took us from homebase (Luray) to Wilkes Barre/Scranton PA where we picked up our passenger Adeline. From there we flew Adeline over to Franklin PA where Pilot #2 (Jon Beck) would be flying her to Bowling Green, OH…. then Pilot #3 (Charlie Poll) would be flying the 3rd leg of the Angel Flight, landing in Chicago/Waukegan IL (Adeline’s destination)
After seeing Adeline off with Pilot Jon Beck, we departed Franklin OH and headed home. Our flight conditions all day was severe clear with some fairly strong winds (Heading up to Scranton we had around a 25knott headwind….but even with the wind, above 4000 feet it was a glassy smooth ride) Flying from Scranton over to Franklin took us over the mountians of PA, of which have already been doused with the beautiful colors of Fall ! On this leg we still had some fairly strong winds, but they were across our path, basicly canceling out any head or tail wind components. Heading home we still had some wind (which was on our tail) helping to zip us home.
This was Adelines first Angel Flight and we really enjoyed being a part of it and getting to meet her ….. along with her wonderful Smile she carried with her !
