We were met at Wilmington Airport by fuel trucks buzzing about, count em' Atlantic, Dassault and our fuel supplier Aeroways. Three trucks crossing the ramps and topping of various birds anxious to get in the cool September like air. I completed the preflight and mounted the camera for a video of our flight. I am looking forward to my Instrument Lessons to be complete so Mary and I can get back into our weekend groove of flying off and enjoying the time together. Thankfully we will be flying to Nags Head in twelve days! We decided to get away and Nags Head, North Carolina is only a two hour hop.
Millville radio drove me bonkers as it always does. There is no nice way to put it so here goes, they need to just plain shut up and let traffic make calls, Ahhhh, I feel much better. I've said it before and I'll say it again, they are going to cause an accident. Besides the normal radio chaos we had a good time. Both of us feel bad for backing out of the NEF event at 4N1, Greenwood lake but it was better to have fun then suffer through and hour each way when my Bride didn't feel all that great. Part II of our flight is from Taxiway 'J'uliet, then my battery must have died. I'm pre-occupied flying and don't give it another look until enroute to Wilmington. At the end you will hear Mary comment nice landing, and no stall horn. It's bad when the non-pilot knows I was flat.
I have an Instrument lesson planned for tomorrow, three hours of approaches and getting squared away with the Garmin 300XL GPS. The cross country is scheduled for Wednesday. Updates to follow after I drag myself out of the plane!
