A few weeks ago we were able to go flying with some friends. Our friend Mark is a pilot and has access to airplanes. We decided to go flying and also grab some dinner by flying to the Ogden Airport and have dinner at Rickenbacker’s Bistro & Restaurant. We were able to fly in, park the airplane outside the restaurant and walk in. It was really fun. It reminds me of growing up and my grandmother would fly into the old NutTree Airport in Vacaville. I took about 1500 pictures and most of them were damaged because my CF card became corrupted. Here are some pictures that survived the flight.
I think this is a really cool photograph of us landing at the Salt Lake International Airport. Our little Cessna airplane uses the same runway as the huge jetliners that come and go from the airport. After flying over and seeing some of the other airports in Utah, the Salt Lake airport looked like the Vegas Strip will all the lights.
We were able to circle over Salt Lake a few times. I was able to get some good pictures of the Salt Lake Temple all lit up. I was actually trying to get some shots of the City Creek Project. You can see Tower 1 on Block 76 all lit up and some of the other buildings that are rising in downtown Salt Lake. It looked really beautiful at night. It was also much better in person. Eventually my photographs will catch up.
