Took the Diamond DA-40 for a nice fly a few days ago. The weather was absolutely perfect: Clear skies, low humidity, moderate temperatures. No reason to stay on the ground. I took the long way, flying down through northern Delaware then turning across the upper reaches of the bay, following the western coast of New Jersey then to Cape May Airport. A pair of World War II bombers were parked there. Here’s a look:
After taking off from Cape May, I did a few circuits around the lighthouse, enjoying the clear view below:

It was a great flight, a good time to practice my skills and enjoy the privilege of being above it all. Always do your checklist!
