Landing KOQN (Brandywine Airport)

It’s fall foliage season, so head out to your local airport and go for a ride. Take in the sights. That’s what I was doing when I took this flight in a venerable Cessna 172. Was a little early for the fall colors, which had just started. Took the opportunity to polish some skills. Here’s a landing:

As you can see, lots of bugs died on the windscreen that day. Was a decent landing and a great flight. Looking forward to many more soon.

West Chester Restaurant Festival

West Chester, PA (USA) hosts a fantastic restaurant festival. And who doesn’t love a great meal? Wandered the streets for several hours, meeting friends from my regular joints like The Classic Diner.

They had Belgian Waffles there as you can see in the next photo:

There were other stands, too, with everything from homemade soft drinks to pasta to baked goods to smoked meats.

Speaking of which, I needed a brisket fix and connected with this sandwich, which had me enjoying in a serious way:

This was a great festival with crafts, live music, and plenty of friendly people. I only wish I could eat more. See you next year. Enjoy ever meal in between.

Landing 9R at KMIA

Another excellent flight aboard American Airlines. We were on time and arrived in comfort after a nice breakfast. Here’s a look at the landing at Miami International:

There are many professionals working behind the scenes, people we never get to see, making sure our flights are safe. Be a good passenger by cooperating with cabin staff and your fellow travelers. Courtesy is free. Use it liberally. (For those interested, this video was taken with a Nikon 1 AW camera.)

Classic Diner Lunch (again)

In need of a cheeseburger, I stopped at The Classic Diner, Malvern, PA, USA, which is one of my favorite joints for such comfort food. Was also testing some functions on a new camera so made a short video. Check it out:

That bacon cheeseburger with double onions is the way to go. Flavor is excellent. Filling. Fortifying. If you count the onion rings on the side, that’s actually triple onions. In other words, just right. Of course, a sticky bun for the road enhances the experience. Enjoy every meal.
