|The VP's Gulfstream|
With the V.P. climbing away from Wilmington in his Gulfstream, I am directed to proceed to runway nine via taxiway kilo, hold short at Kilo 5. Vince makes all the calls and does a fine job. Once cleared to take off I roll onto the runway and climb out. Cleared on course and with a follow up check by Vince with the tower he has us turning right to a southwest heading.
Vince made the call for flight following to Dover and we were good to go. There were jumpers at Ridgely just six miles off the nose so we kept a close watch for meat missiles and the jump plane. Vince soon had a visual on the jump plane and we turned farther east to give more room for jumpers that were going to be falling through the layer above us. We didn't want to meet anyone up close. By this time we had been on with Potomac approach and we advised them of the deviation for the jumpers.
|Ready to go at KGED, clearance to ILG|
|Departing rwy 10|
The wx started to show on the garmin 496 and it confirmed what the eyeballs were telling us. It looked like heavy rain now moving into the Easton and south area covering our intended destination. I made a call to Potomac and diverted to Georgetown, KGED. Georgetown was busy with traffic and Vince and I both were looking. There was plenty of cloud cover so it took some scanning to spot traffic.
|That's right where we're headed|
|Yep, 496 is correct|
|Just starting to sprinkle|
|washing off the bugs|
|just under the layer, no bumps in the cool temps|
|At least the rain quit|
