Nailed my 3-point solo XC today, great winds and very little cloud cover for a 175 mile journey that included stops in Ocala (OCF) and Cedar Key (CDK) before returning home to Tampa North (X39).
Ill be a Private Pilot by November!
I remember seeing this at the USAF museum in Dayton, OH. It left quite the impression on me. I was probably 10 years of age, give or take, and it was quite a “wow moment”. Similar to when I saw the Saturn V the first time. Must have been quite a sight to see during takeoff with all engines going.
