Barnstorming, Warbird Sky Ventures, Lawrence, Kansas











I waited patiently
until July to cash in on my Christmas gift— nearly an hour of flight in a flight trainer, AT-6G, built in 1941, piloted by Gina Michelle Moore. She is an excellent stunt pilot and put me through paces with loop-the-loops and wing waves. My flight was late in the day on a beautiful July evening.
