One of the greatest things about attending a SWPC Convention is the adventure in getting there, especially when getting there involves flying in a Short Wing Piper. Larry Jenkins, our Education Foundation Director and Manager of our SWPC Store, had a great flying adventure flying his Clipper from his home in Tennessee to our convention in Saratoga Springs and back home again. Larry sent in many wonderful pictures of his flight home and is letting me share them with all of you. Thanks, Larry!
Larry’s pictures are a great inspiration to get out and fly and enjoy the world from above. So sit back and take a look at the slideshow – and then get out and fly or start planning your next flying trip to see the world from above.
Perhaps Larry’s pictures will inspire you to fly your Short Wing to the 2014 SWPC Convention in Santa Maria, California!
Here’s some information from Larry on his pictures:
The first group of pictures includes a few pictures from the convention flight line at the Saratoga Airport and the pictures taken on the flight home of the Hudson River to the Statue of Liberty. The next group of pictures were taken on the segment of Larry’s journey from the New York City area to Morehead City, NC.
Larry wrote, “I fulfilled one of my dreams to have taken every airplane I have owned to Kitty Hawk. You can see the monument in the background. I love the mystic of the outer banks of North Carolina. The weather was beautiful, and you are along for one of the most awesome flights. To keep my story short, I spent several days in Morehead City with friends I have known for more than 50 years. Once I got a break in the weather, I flew as far west as possible, and the weather put me down in Rockingham, NC for several more days. Again, I stayed with friends that lived in that area. When the weather cleared, I flew west to Ft. Payne, Alabama, for fuel, and on home to H 75. The trip was far more than what you have read about in this email and seen in these pictures. It was a trip of a life time!”
