Nighty Flying with the Roomies

It really pays to have a pilot for a roommate. My roommate Nate was generous to take a couple of us out with him last night. He needed to keep practicing his night flying, so we headed out right as the sun was setting. Our friend and former roommate Michael got to join us for his first ever flight in a small plane!

One of the best things about Michael is his smile. He’s always smiling.

We flew to Lebanon for some practice takeoffs and landings. Here’s the view of the cockpit as we approached the runway.Night_Flight_Nate_Tuttle_Kevin_0015_151115
