The "Story"

A friend lets me fly his vintage plane down to Greenville, where I'll
pick up a friend and load up a Beech Twin Bonanza with all my gear.
Great chance to marvel at the opportunity to fly, think, appreciate.
I've got a big journey ahead.

Aircraft:  Beech Staggerwing

Challenges:   light fog, low light, mountains.

Overview:    You leave 1/2 hour before dawn.  The moon is waxing and clear.  It's dawn, low light, a bit of fog here and there. Check your fuel and load because the territory is a bit lonely and remote, although wonderfully beautiful.

      Keep an eye on your Nav radio gauges while you fly. This old airplane doesn't have a GPS unit. You need to navigate around a M.O.A ( military operations area ).   The plane flies like a dream, though, great visibility and rather fast, too.   You have a full load though, all your gear.   This biplane was very popular at one time, very unusual wing design, highly collectible.

      Get up in altitude so you can see the sun rising earlier.
