- Total Time
Flew the last C-47 flight of the year. We did the $50 hamburger run to Grosse Isle, MI (Former NAS Grosse Isle where I joined the Navy 43 years ago this month) The sky was clear, the temps perfect, the winds light, we took a dozen museum members down to the airport restaurant. Made a perfect greaser landing, so I can rest through the winter on laurels of my last nearly perfect landing. This is after getting a little cocky the last time I flew and tired doing a three-pointer, which was very ugly, so back to not so glamorous wheel landing. BTW I wore my McCain pin on my flight suit.
