Last Saturday I was lucky enough to get an invite from captain Tom to go for a fly in his Lancair 235.
He even came and picked me up from my doorstep (Reid Hillview Airport, how cool is that? We took off and were instantly over Alum Rock park, where Heidi and I like to mountain bike.
Pleasanton Ridge looks like it would be a nice place to fly. And on our left side to the west was a nice view of Carquinez Strait looking out to San Francisco.
We passed over Napa and Sonoma, and landed at Petaluma Municipal for a bit to eat. Not that we were tired it was only a 40 min dogleg !
There were some neat planes in Petaluma, A couple of Rutan VariEze's and a Honet STOL Toms' Lancair of course :) and I don't remember what this one is...
Across the South Bay and home. I feel pretty lucky to have had this opportunity, and on an unusually clear day to boot ! Thanks Tom :)
