Flight to Elmira 01-27-2008

Jeff and I flew down to Elmira to help the Harris Hill club disassemble one of their ASK-21s for some wing work. We were getting cold by the time we moved other gliders out of the way and got this one moved to another hangar for the work. Once the hangar door closed big heaters clicked on and we warmed up in no time.

Todays thought: Dark and dismal below the clouds, sunny and happy above!
