Blue Sky Fly

There have been some perfect weather days. That is, perfect weather days for flying. Low humidity, light winds, clear sky over head. Here’s a view looking at the very northern reaches of the Chesapeake Bay:

Here’s another view in which you can almost see forever.

And just for fun, here’s a look at the instrument panel in that Diamond DA-40:

The DA-40 hums along at 130 knots. That expansive canopy provides plenty of visibility. And on days like this one, it’s awesome. Always do your checklist!
