I took both of these while I was out working yesterday. As I have mentioned in previous posts we are in our very slow season, but when I fly I post current images. We will begin to get busier as we near the month of May. Currently most of my days are spent building on my house, working on the plane, and taking care of business. I took several pictures of the plane this winter while it was under maintenance. I will do a maintenance post in the weeks to come.
The first image is simply a pilot’s perspective angle, and the second shows what the clouds look like when the wind is blowing 60 knots. Yesterday the wind was light and variable on the ground, 40 knots at 3000′, and 60 knots at 6000′. We got our work done, but there were a couple of bumps along the way. I never climbed above 1500′ because I wanted to avoid the wind-shear that was certain to exist somewhere between the ground and 6000′. In the second picture you can just barely see evidence of Anchorage on the far side of Cook Inlet. I love the sun in those clouds.
