A Jodel’s “wooden glory”!

This sent in by Nic Orchard from across the pond.  Nic, I know what you mean about being “about 9 inside”.  When you take a kid for a ride, or anyone that you know is really excited to be up there with you, you just can’t help feel that way! And that’s a good thing!! Thanks for sending us the nice close up of your Jodel  – you’re looking good!

“Hi Judy.  A ‘spotter’ sent me links to some great photos he did at a fly-in earlier in the spring.  I attach just one because it’s so much better than anything the rest of us can do and shows the Jodel in all her wooden glory.

We had a sort of open day at the airfield today and I flew the 9 year old son of a friend as we attempted to identify some landmarks for the competition.  This was his first flight in anything and he was just so cool – a few minutes after take-off and he was  picking out the landmarks.

I’m about 9 inside and this reminded me why. We are so lucky.”
