I just wanted to thank Bob and Tony for a great seminar in Mobile last weekend. Having the event in Mobile and being able to tour the Continental factory and talk with some VERY senior people there was a wonderful bonus.
It was also a pleasure meeting a number of other twin Cessna owners and finally being able to put faces (and planes) with screen names!
On Sunday as about a half dozen twin Cessnas fired up and taxied out, the controller asked me “What was going on?” and I told him about the seminar. He didn’t sound impressed, but I was.
Instead of heading home, I took full advantage of my magic carpet and flew to DC for a meeting. It turned out that I was chasing Dan Herr and we kept checking in on frequencies a few minutes apart. At one point there were three “Golden Eagles” on frequency which was a first for me.
As the sun was setting and my 421 was purring along at 17k doing 230kts+ groundspeed I was reflecting on how wonderful these machines are as the sun was setting behind my left wing. A good ending to a fun weekend.
