June and I like to go fly

.... And so we did ... the Bonanza hauled me from New York to Kentucky to North Carolina to Florida and did it in very good time - better than driving and just about the same cost when you consider stopping for meals and a couple of nights in a hotel. I can prove it with the fuel slips and with the help of AAA and their driving maps. Even with avgas costs just absurd, the numbers compare very favorably (seeing as how the price of car gas is absurd too, these days).

More about June as soon as I figure out how to load a video on the blog ... this antique pilot still has a few tricks to learn. In the meantime, try clicking on the link below or cut and paste into your browser to see the ornithopter ride at the Western North Carolina Air Museum ... it's a big hit with the kids, especially during the Air Fair, held the first weekend in June each year.
