Night Cessna

The view: A lonely airplane sits under the moonlight

The pilot: Kevin Knight

The airplane: Cessna 172

The mission: Home to Bremerton, Washington (PWT), from Phoenix.

The memory: After taking a commercial flight back to SEATAC, I was dropped off at PWT by a friend. While walking to my hangar at 10pm to retrieve my car, I saw this lonely 172 on the flight line with the moon illuminating it. The temperature was 33 degrees F, extremely humid, and really uncomfortable. Like me, I suspect the plane wanted to warm up and head somewhere else. Even planes get lonely.
