A Journal, with Pictures

Homeward Bound

by on Oct.06, 2011, under Flying, Happenings

On Sun­day, Octo­ber 2nd. we left Mon­tre­al in low over­cast and climbed to six thou­sand feet on top of a cloud lay­er. The tem­per­a­ture was above freez­ing and we had a 30 plus knot tail wind. The fore­cast called for the freez­ing lev­el to get down to our alti­tude near Toron­to on our way to Detroit. We were in and out of the clouds and rain with tem­per­a­tures drop­ping but nev­er down to freez­ing. We broke out of the clouds about one hun­dred miles east of Detroit and land­ed with a gusty wind down the run­way. Cus­toms at KDET, Detroit City air­port, was a plea­sure and we refu­eled and were in the air with­in an hour. We expe­ri­enced a 40 knot tail wind and cruised at around 200 knots over the ground land­ing in Day­ton in less than an hour.

We flew eight legs on our trip, three of which were what we orig­i­nal­ly planned. We unfor­tu­nate­ly had to miss New Eng­land this year due to bad weath­er, how­ev­er we enjoyed Nova Sco­tia and Que­bec. Although we did­n’t get our quo­ta of lob­ster this year, we know they will be wait­ing next year and maybe be a lit­tle bit big­ger. Over­all it was a good trip for the the Williamson Fam­i­ly three mus­ke­teers, and we are already start­ing to think about our next fly­ing adventure.
