Jan 2013 Spy in the Sky!
767 AND lady taildragger pilot Freya Shiller should win the “Mom of the Month” contest. This one’s just plain funny!
“Judy, I took my son along with several other young boys to 81D (Flyin’ Tiger Field) recently. Â The boys had all received air soft guns for Christmas and wanted to shoot them. Â Being city dwellers, Â 81D offered the perfect opportunity. Â The airport offers two grass runways located on 98 partially wooded acres.”
“The boys took off into the woods, dog in tow. Â After some time I began to wonder what they were up to. Â Not wanting to be a helicopter mom, I’d let them go without me. Â But, being a fixed wing mom I pulled out the Legend Cub and was able to spy on them from above. Â Mothering by taildragger!”
