I worked through the weight and balance with the new owner and CFII on my iPhone app, so much faster then paper and pencil. With fifty gallons on board and just shy of 110 pounds of baggage, together with 08Romeo books and extras they came in ten pounds under gross.
Once they saddled up I decided to take a video and capture 08Romeos departure. It was really strange watching her roll on takeoff and I wasn't in the left seat or even the plane. Nevertheless she lifted off and climbed to make one circle over the field, thanks guys. Soon 08Romeo was out of sight and I could no longer hear her climbing away.
Safe flights and tailwinds my friend.
