Thursday, March 24th – First light

Mike and Chris make it to Stellar, AZ on Wednesday, a private airpark smack in metropolis Phoenix, where they visit with good friends.  This shot is on takeoff- headed to Cochise, AZ.     So far, light winds,  high clouds.    The L-5 just recently got new observation glass (the ‘greenhouse windows in the roof), and was fitted for the replica bazookas (they don’t fire though)..

The bazookas create lots of drag, and, cause more than a little consternation for FAA officials, and so they’re used only for static display. 

As of 9:30, ‘Lady Satan’ has left Cochise, and is headed to T27, near El Paso, Texas!
