Friday Photo: a perfect picture over Nebraska
The view: Procedure turn inbound at Blair, Nebraska (BTA).
The pilot: Dave Johnson
The airplane: 1960 Beech Bonanza
The mission: A little instrument practice to knock the rust off, shooting the RNAV 13 into my home base.
The memory: It was one of those smooth as glass evenings and we had already made two other approaches. I was ready to finish this last approach and call it a day when my safety pilot said, “take your foggles off. You’ve got to see this.” I came out from under the hood and was again amazed at the beauty that sometimes can only be appreciated from an airplane. God sure knows how to paint a beautiful picture. I quickly captured the moment on my cell phone then it was turn inbound on the localizer to finish another trip in my flying machine.
