He took a top-gun pilot

Earlier this year, my son and I went flying!

Every year the local Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) hosts free flights for youth ages 8-17 through their Young Eagles program. It's a great program and I highly recommend it. I didn't expect to get a ride because it's for the youth, but the pilot had extra time and offered. It was so fantastyk! I really loved it. This was my son's second flight; he had also gone the year before.

Check out my son's spikes! Yikes!

Do I look nervous??

He took a top-gun pilot - song: Time Will Crawl, artist: David Bowie, album: Never Let Me Down

This is so cool! Check you out in there! What an exciting thing to do.
What was Trevor looking at?

John just walked by and went gaga over that plane. :)
He's got a similar one, a P-51 model plane, on his desk.

He's looking at photos on his cell phone to make sure they came out. My camera died after the first photo and I didn't have back up batteries. We had to rely on his cell phone for documentation of the event. :)
