Little Kestrel
 
Have you flown the 'little' one yet?
I guess last weekend would be a 'character building' weeked. I :censored: those. Sure hope Tonopah isn't more of the same.

FULLSCALE Kestral
 
That's a beautiful photo of the full scale Kestral. Looks to be several thousand feet up. Congrats on the long distance ride. A one way trip I suppose :)

The fullsize Kestrel in the picture is over 20,000 feet msl in the Minden wave window, I'm guessing more like 30,000 because the little mountains in the background are actually the Sierras. Pic was taken with the previous owner in it, I've only been to 17,999 in it. The long flight started and landed at the same airport, Jean NV. just south of Vegas. Most of our flights now return to the same airport we take off at, landouts are rare unless you want to.
