My first solo flight (photo courtesy of Aaron Boyd)
The customary cutting of the shirt-tail following my first solo flight at the Springfield-Robertson County Airport (5-27-2011). I'm not sure where this originated, to be honest, but maybe it's the flight instructor's little bit of "revenge" for any nervous moments incurred during the course of initial flight training! LOL The is McCauley Aviation's CFI Jeremy Binkley doing the honors on an old tee I sacrificed for the occasion.
Second & third solo landings - Springfield, Robertson County, Tennessee
Another video much like the first I posted earlier today but of my second and third solo landings at M91, the Springfield-Robertson County Airport, shot by my friend's son, Michael Boyd (May 27, 2011). Nope, not nearly as exciting as watching a jet in action or some such but a personal milestone, indeed. I'll be back to "regular" photography posts and comments asap, I assure you! :-)
