A couple of Saturdays ago I flew with a fellow flight club member, Warren Hendrickson, up to Arlington Wa (KAWO) for the annual Arlington Fly-in and airshow. After washing the club aircraft with fellow members (a monthly event) we took off in the club Cessna 177RG from Tacoma Narrows (KTIW) and headed north under cloudy skies. Our flight path took us north up Puget sound and the Kitsap Peninsula, west of SeaTac Airport and downtown Seattle and eventually right over Paine Field (KPAE) and the huge Boeing plant. Arlington was pretty heavy traffic-wise but following the published procedures we were soon on the ground. There were lots of airplanes (from general aviation to military) and a large display of military vehicles, which was unexpected but cool. We wandered around looking at airplanes and vendor booths, had some lunch, watched the show and sat in on a presentation by WA Air Search and Rescue that really got us thinking about some additional emergency supplies for the aircraft and things to do to assure a timely rescue in the event of a mishap. When the show was over and the all clear was given we started back up and flew home. Though it was a bit cloudy it was overall a good day...and I got a taste of a club aircraft I hadn't flown yet. Here are a few pics from the trip.
