I'm heading out of town for a few days, then when I return, Bruce and I will head to California to pick up the Luscombe. That means this was probably my last flight in the Chief. Phil has it up for sale and it should sell fairly quickly. I'm going to enjoy flying my new plane, but I will also miss the Chief. Something about stepping back into the forties and swinging that prop by hand to start it make you feel more connected to the plane. Knowing as docile as she is, she'll bite you if you don't pay attention... Knowing people will be amazed when they look into the plane and see the beautiful panel... Sticking your hand out into the slipstream and feeling that cool air on your face... I could go on forever! I truly enjoyed flying this plane and can't thank Phil enough for the opportunity. I know everyone I took up had a smile on their face!
