My son's 11th birthday was Sunday but we held The Main Event on Saturday. He's always wanted to fly somewhere ... anywhere ... just to be able to fly. Being the fantastic mom that I am er: ) I asked one of our cousins who has his license and a plane, to take Cole and my twin nephews, Aaron and Brett up. He was more than tickled to do it ... Cole got his greatest wish ... and a fun time was had by all. I know these aren't the greatest shots, but they sure were fun to take! (I don't know what happened to the sizes ... sorry for the big shots!) First up ... The Pilot and Crew The Co Pilot, formerly known as The Birthday Boy The Take Off ... (I was kind of proud of this shot as it was taken with my zoom ... AND I got a stop-shot of the prop!!! ) And ... finally .... "Tower, this is Maverick ... I'd like to request permission for a flyby ..." Thanks for looking ... it was a great day!
