Feb 2011 Lorrie Penner’s winter update!
Lorrie Penner sent in this update on her winter flying fun! Lorrie flies out of Red Stewart Airfield, Waynesville, Ohio.
“Well, its that time of year… snow…Â But we’ve been fortunate enough that it doesn’t stop us from flying!Â Had my first experience taking off and landing on a snowy grass field in the Pawnee.Â What a great weekend! Perfect time to practice soft field landing technique.”
“Snow was only 2-3inches deep and light & fluffy.Â Our club at Caesar Creek got in 17 glider flights this day and I got to give 4 of them a tow!”
“A couple of days later, flew around in the Champ with my honey Gordon. He wanted to do some practice landings from the backseat in preparation for his new Pitts which he flew home the day after his birthday – happy birthday present to himself!” 🙂
Congratulations, Gordon! Hard to beat a birthday like this one!! (Judy)
