KGVL - KCNI (flying time 0:48)
Hey, I get to fly back from Gainesville!
From KGVL (Lee Gilmer Memorial Airport) 2011-10-04 13:37:28 to KCNI (Cherokee County Municipal Airport) 2011-10-04 14:25:36 [00:48:00] with 2 day and 0 night landings.
David Thorburn-Gundlach (pilot-L) / Laura Thorburn-Gundlach (copilot) /
What started out as a lovely day at KGVL rapidly deteriorated to a traffic jam. I was IN THE PATTERN and set up on downwind and listening to the chatter, so I *really* don't think that I missed the announcement, but it's good thing I was high since by the time I was on final there was suddenly a Pilatus UNDER me going for landing! I saw him right about the same time as someone else (still not the pilot, you'll note) warned me about him, so I broke off and went around. That was too much, though, so we just headed out from there.
I did get to do some sightseeing on the way back to Cherokee, though; Laura noticed the twin water towers at the Bethany/9 intersection and, more interestingly, new high school site, so we doodled around over that for a while. It's nice to have such a convenient landmark! Maybe we'll wing-waggle Madi between classes one day :-)
