Flight: 2009-1112-1 in N37148 (BlueBird) for $
KCNI - KCNI (flying time 0:55)
Nite landing practice (as copilot since not current).
Needed 6 approaches for 3 landings; yikes! All in a 12kt 1/4-wind and very gusty & bouncy air from 0-500 ft AGL to make things even more 'fun' :-)
After that my safety pilot (who had also flown over with Q and flown with L & M) was tired, so we didn't get to play any more. There's always tomorrow...
From KCNI (Cherokee County Municipal Airport) 2009-11-13 00:11:00 to KCNI (Cherokee County Municipal Airport) 2009-11-13 01:06:00 [00:55:00] with 1 day and 3 night landings.

1) Forgot the landing lite! 'Oh, shit!' == go around
2) The bottom fell out (good old runway 4) just as we were almost there. Needed more right rudder than I had after the bounce as I was headed for the grass :-(
3) Landing (finally!). Had some throttle left in and thus my perception was off, but even though it was rough it worked.
4) Touch-and-Go-Around 'cuz we fell in again a little too hard for my liking and there's no reason to push it.
