The view from a Cirrus SR22 today. We had an ice storm and then a snowstorm over the past couple of weeks even though it is April. What’s left of winter is hanging on as chunks of ice in the bay of Green Bay.
Lots of flying on this April Fools Day. About six and a half hours round trip to Millard Airport in Omaha, Nebraska and back. I dropped off a couple of guys and flew home solo in the Cessna 182.
I have to make this trip again soon if the weather is good, but I’ll go back to using “the big airport” from now on. After sitting in a plane for over three hours, it’s good to have friendly service once you get out.
It was interesting to watch the snow disappear on the way southwest. Coming back, I flew over the Mississippi River after sunset.
We made perfect use of the corporate Cessna 182 today. First I picked up my boss in Milwaukee, which was exciting to me because I don’t often get to go to that airport. (The FBO’s fees deter me as a recreational flyer.) It’s fun to visit the busiest airport in the state… not something I do every day.
This was one of those days where work was extra-fun!
