Dogwood Air Park to Cambridge, MD to Chatham Cape Cod, MA 4 - 5 May 2006

Scenic flight past Manhattan's skyscrapers


Logbook index

After a hearty breakfast and more flying talk, we were soon in the air again for a pleasant flight to Cape Cod. The flying weather in New England had improved dramatically from the previous days where they had 1 mile visibility, overcast at 100 feet and 8 degrees Celsius! We flew VFR the whole way (total flying time about 3h30), including a quick stop at Cambridge, MD, to refuel.
Following Bill's suggestion we descended low over the Hudson river near New York, and had a great aerial view of the Statue of Liberty and the skyscrapers of Manhattan. The busy New York controllers were friendly and efficient like most air traffic controllers in the US.
In Chatham, we were greeted by fine spring weather and our old friend Barbara Dean, who drove us to Barbara and Bob's house set in a beautiful garden.

5 May 2006. Another nice spring day in Cape Cod. Barbara and Angela took Noisette (Gordon setter) for a walk on the beach while Bob and Flemming went to the airport and did the 50 hours maintenance (oil, oil filter and spark plugs) on Honey Mooney. Evening out at an excellent seafood restaurant in Orleans.

Flemming was too busy flying the plane to get a closer shot of the Statue of Liberty.
