There is nothing like flying!

In the capable hands of Captain Utnes I had the rare and beautiful chance of finally get some air under the wings! A short, but lovely flight this evening. Calm weather and few clouds was the setting of seeing the city of Narvik from above with the city lights. Usually that is just passing by in a few seconds coming in or going out by the commercial flights. Howering in a small Piper Cherokee over the city gives a very different feeling and gives quite a different feeling than the “glorified busrides” a commercial liner has to offer. And when flying together with a pilot with 30 years flying experience is also a treat. Seeing how he reads his instruments, trims the plane and handles it by the book and more is a brilliant experience. And kudos, exactly when the rear wheels touched the runway the stall light gave a short indication. That is the hallmark of a perfect landing and usually says quite a lot about good piloting! More pictures will be published as I have a chance to process them.
