    had forgotten about them actually, found them in my archive folder.
    sometimes I take a digicam along on flight lessons, sometimes I grab a few shots.
    just a view from a piper seminole

    what part of Montana are you from?
    I grew up in Billings, always liked airplanes, and went to MSU bozeman as an ME major, met a friend there that flew off an old gravel strip about 30 miles south of livingston and he got me hooked on flying.. got a checkride this week for my multi/commercial/instrument ratings.. [​IMG] it's an addictive hobby.
    taking people for the first time in a light aircraft is a blast, usually it makes a really awesome impression, either they love it and they'll be taking lessons the next week, or they're scared to death and won't do it again. Either way, I like to share it whenever I can [​IMG]
    I'm glad I ran across those, I get so wrapped up in deadlines and getting this lesson done by this date I forget why I'm there.

    Nice pix.
    I am a flight fanatic (this coming from someone who has only flown about 4 times) but I rarely get to fly and have no $$$ to take lessons.
    I have MS Flightsim though, does that count? [​IMG]
    I was told that my first word besides momma or daddy was helicopter.
    I hope that after I get some finances paid down and stuff that I can start flying as a hobby and work toward getting a private liscense.

    I went up the first time about 10 months ago in Jekyll Island, GA and loved it. After coming back home I took my first lesson and threw up in the guys cockpit.....

    lol how? am I supposed to pull over and wipe it off? [​IMG]
    right next to the field out here is the "lagoon" which I think is a nice term for a sewege treatment cespool. you should see the bugs mid summer after going out over that a little low [​IMG]
    the throwing up happens I guess.. I keep a handful of air sic bags in my flight bag just in case.
