Sonerai Sighting in Maryland
« on: Dec 03, 2017 »
The two amigos visited the Massey Air Museum http://masseyaero.org/ in their Sonerais today in uncommonly nice weather for December. One was spotted next to his steed, regaling listeners old and young with stories from the flight. The other was off somewhere calculating his stats for the mission...

round trip 190 statute miles
Hobbs time 1.8 hours (includes warm-up and taxiing)
fuel consumed 7.0 gallons
burn rate 3.9 gph

Enjoying these last flights before the snow flies and I have to put her to bed for the winter,
Ed
