Last weekend I was very lucky. A guy with a vintage airplane, a 1930 New Standard D-25 biplane showed up at the McMinnville Airport. He was was dressed accordingly with goggles, pants and everything.
We joked about he should have a little crank attached to his cell phone because it wouldn’t fit the theme otherwise.
He was waiting for a friend to take up for a short ride. Talking to us at the FBO he said that he had room left in the plane and if we would like to go up as well. Of course!
So we climbed up into the front seat. There was actually room for 4 passengers. He fired up the engine and off we went for a ride over the museum, the city and back to the airport.
The feeling of flying a vintage airplane was great. The air hitting your face, just sitting there in the open cockpit hearing the roaring engine and the wind going through the strings was an awesome feeling.
Thank you for the ride!
