Laura Thorburn-Gundlach (pilot-R) / David Thorburn-Gundlach (PIC-legal) /
I executed the takeoff and then handed the plane to Laura once she was foggled up. From there, it was just watching out for traffic -- which actually was easier said than done! We already had a shop guy test flying with no radio and just sort of asshole-ing his way in wherever he wanted, and we also had a Cherokee poking around maybe doing the same thing.
Things got particularly interesting (yes, that's a bad word) right as we were wrapping up. Everyone was using 23, so we planned to break off and circle to land. I had the Cherokee -- I think! -- crossing us on departure and all was well as Laura pulled the foggles, but then the same Cherokee -- I think! -- called downwind, which is exactly where we were. Not getting any answer to our inquiries, we simply broke off to the northwest and dawdled around to a straight-in final -- all the while never hearing any more from our interloper, although we finally saw him show up and land ahead of us. Grrrr! Apparently Valentine's Day means not having to say you're sorry -- or even much else -- at the airport :-)/2
