Water Taxi to Venice Airport

The water taxi ride to Venice Airport is another one of those things that costs some money but is worth it. Here’s the video, leaving the heart of Venice all the way to the airport. Stay with it to see an airplane on final approach. You’ll see plenty of action in the small canals, too.

Enjoy the journey where you’re going.

American Airlines Flight 740 to Madrid

Just for fun, I made a little video showing the takeoff, meals, and landing on American Airlines Flight 740 from Philadelphia to Madrid, Spain.

 

It was a great flight. Excellent crew, good food, and safe. Looking forward to many more like this.

Cessna 140

A true classic showed up at the local airport. Take a look:

That’s a Cessna 140 from the mid-1940’s if my research is correct.

Those are classic lines for sure. What a bunch of adventure this plane has seen.

And the paint lends itself to adventure as well, bright colors making a bold statement. This aircraft is proof that as long as you take care of them, they’ll last a long time.

Short Final 09

As long as we’re on the subject of airplanes, I had the good fortune to be invited for a flight aboard a Beechcraft Bonanza. It was a great day for flying, mostly blue skies overhead and light winds. After a jaunt about the area with a few stops for business purposes, we returned to our home airport. Here’s a POV on short final to Runway 09.

The Bonanza is a stout aircraft. Less shoulder room in the cockpit than the Diamond DA-40 I usually fly. Still, with 300 horsepower up front, it’s a solid performer. Enjoy every flight.
