Flying high

flyover QE I

Last year for my birthday, my son and daughter-in-law gave me a Groupon good for two hours of flying over the Los Angeles area. I waited until winter to get a good visibility day, but the flight was cancelled twice due to bad weather. Finally today, my wife and I got to experience Los Angeles at 3000 feet.

One highlight of the flight was flying over the Queen Mary luxury liner. It is permanently docked in the Long Beach Harbor just 17 miles south of Downey, and it is where another son recently purposed to his girlfriend, who said, "yes."

flying_ryanRyan was our pilot for the day. This is a picture after our landing.
