A Journal, with Pictures

Homeward Bound

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

On Sunday, October 2nd. we left Montréal 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.
