We went in this darling '73 Cessna 182 that Fly Boy is 1/6 owner of, and it was such a wonderful smooth ride I wished I could be taking this back to Canada instead of the Boeing I will inevitably be in on Monday.
Did I say "flight instructor" above? Yes I did. Fly Boy casually handed off the yoke to me so slyly that I didn't even realize he was getting me to ACTUALLY FLY THE PLANE until he said "ok, so you've got control of the aircraft now".
This is one of my favourite photos from the flight. Here's looking into the Kern Valley on our approach.
