December 5 -Challenger 600 and T-45

December 5 — In at 8, fog clearing to clear skies, frost on everything, about 29 outside. Worked on pictures and departed for employer at 8:45; worked until 2:00 and culled articles from MANY magazines. Got along with everyone and enjoyed the five hours there. Back at AKM, took no pictures for the second day in a row. Felt sleepy and considered going upstairs for a nap but I did not. Didn’t want to waste the time. I was too tired to work on models or work on photos so I did the ONLY thing I could do with no brain: cull more articles from aviation magazines. I did this for ALMOST SEVEN HOURS with time out just to get another cup of coffee. It was pretty hard, just concentrating for that long with Flying, Plane & Pilot and FlyPasts. Accomplished a LOT. Headed home at 9:00. Day rating: A, not that I had that much fun but because I accomplished so much with the magazines. 🙂

Pictures are from August 14, 2015.  The smiling Challenger pilot gent holds a picture of his license plate. He flew C-141s and enjoyed seeing the custom build model which arrived after the Commandant, United States Air Force Academy visited AKM December 3, 2014.  The gentleman (and an officer) in full flying gear visited AKM the same day. He was instructor pilot  on the colorful T-45 that visited later. It was a particularly terrific day! 🙂
