Our neighbor's little girl always runs out to look up when I fly over and says "Look, it's Mr. Mark's plane!" She told her mom that what she wanted most for her fourth birthday was another ride in the Velocity. How could I say no to this face?
We loaded up with her Mom and headed up. It was a beautiful and clear day if a little windy.
Here are some pictures from the flight.
We climbed quickly to 5,500 feet so that she could see the tops of the clouds, cruised around a bit then headed back toward the airport.
