The Flight of Passage

This gallery contains 17 photos.

Finally, after years of planning, I realized my life-long dream to fly across the US very much like the Buck brothers did in the book I named my site after. This June, my 11 year-old son Alex and I spent 10 … Continue reading

Hong Kong

This gallery contains 7 photos.

If you are an aviation enthusiast, the main reason to visit Hong Kong USED to be Kai Tak – one of the world’s most difficult airports to land at. I say “used to” because Kai Tak is no more. The … Continue reading

Cleveland Rocks!

Cleveland, OH is a relatively short 1.5h flight from my home base in Indianapolis. This was my first time there and I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. First of all, the city scores a BIG PLUS in my book for preserving and continuing to operate a general aviation airport right next to downtown. You can land a plane at Burke Lakefront (KBKL) and walk to downtown in 10-15 mins. It is awesome!

Second, the downtown are is quite clean, albeit it was completely deserted in the middle of Saturday afternoon. We did not venture much into the downtown area as our main goal was to see the USS Cod (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED) but from what I saw, I did not get the feel that the city was in a decline.

We went to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (mainly because my son is a Beatles fan) but I did not think it was really all that great (read a lot of hype about it beforehand). The Beatles exhibit was OK – you could see a few cool memorabilia such as the manuscript of the “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds,” Lennon’s glasses, etc. All in all, most of other artifacts consisted of stage costumes of the various “inductees.”

Tokyo, Japan

My all-time favorite city. No clue how GA-friendly it is as I did not fly around it but still love it. The view of Mount Fuji from Roppongi is spectacular. I really lucked-out. Within 30 mins of taking the photo the … Continue reading

Indianapolis, IN

This gallery contains 2 photos.

Not much to look at but I still like Indy. Friendly people, excellent for general aviation (many nice airports around), safe, decent weather, and cost of living. Plus, it is my current hometown.

Toruń, Poland

This gallery contains 8 photos.

Toruń is, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful old cities I have seen. Birthplace of Copernicus, it is full of history and it managed to survive WWII mostly unscathed. It is one of the oldest cities in Poland … Continue reading
