The Right Seat

I had the pleasure of taking a nice flight in a different plane. This time, it was a Piper Archer for a run around the Philadelphia Area. I sat in the right seat for the first half of the flight, which was different because I was able to snap a few photos, such as this one of the skyline from about 1,200′ MSL:

The other benefit was getting this close to Philadelphia proper, an area I usually avoid. From there it was a slow turn to the north and then west out to Chester County Airport (KMQS) for lunch. Here’s a look at Runway 29 on final:

Had a tasty lunch then took off, this time in the left seat for the short run back to headquarters. Was a great flight. I suppose they all are. Always do your checklist!
