Took the day off when I saw the weather forecast yesterday.  Launched out of 33N after the fog cleared and visibility improved, and flew up to Lancaster  to do some ILS approaches in low visibility.  I didn’t get there in time for challenging conditions, but did get a few ILS approaches working with Harrisburg.

Stopped there only for a few minutes, and then picked up my clearance back to 33N.  From there I worked with Dover to get two ILS approaches to their Runway 01. Lots of traffic and a new controller; I enjoyed the work.  I ended the flight with a GPS27 to a full stop at 33N.

Airplane needed to be cleaned by this time, but I took the bike home and came back later to get that done. It felt good getting it spotless; including under the wings. Wax and crome nosecone polish is planned for tomorrow while I watch it rain from the comfort of my hangar.

Bev’s busy most of the day, so you’ll be able to find me this saturday at the airport.

Fully retired now, unless something interesting comes along. I’ve enjoyed a lucrative career as an Electrical Engineer, Certified Software Solutions Developer, and Project Manager. An excellent and fun career that I’m very proud of. I began flying commercially in Dash-8 aircraft for Piedmont Airlines, and moved on to instruct in the Gulfstream 280; WestWind; and Astra jet aircraft. I’ve also been blessed with a type rating in the B-25 bomber in a fortunate turn of events. My wife, Beverly, and I currently own and operate a beautifully restored PA30 Twin Comanche, which we use to explore the CONUS.
