Gondola Ride, Venice, Italy

 

As long as we’re in Venice, let’s go for a Gondola ride. Some may think this is a silly tourist adventure. Forget that. It was fun and interesting to see the buildings at water level, passing through the smaller canals for a peek at how life flows in this exotic city. Check it out:

There was some singing, lots of photos, and great views of some Venice sights. Highly recommend this to all.

Delaware Bay Anchorage

We interrupt the postings from Spain for this photo taken on a southbound flight over the Delaware Bay. Look closely and you’ll see ships in the anchorage.

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.

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.
