Up, Up and Away

Happy Wednesday. -  A couple of weekends ago we took Coleen out to attend an event where they were offering FREE rides to kids in airplanes.  She's never flown in a plane before so this was the perfect opportunity for her to see what flying is like.  It was sponsored by a group called, YoungEagles.org.


Linking up today for Wednesday Around the World.

Getting instructions on how the planes work.

This is the plane she went up in.

Her flying buddies (Alex and Alexander) who she just met and I cajoled into posing for a photo for me.

The Pilot helping her into the plane.

Headgear on and ready to go.

Slow taxi down the runway.

Just about to lift off.

We have take-off.

Up, Up and Away.

Coming in for the landing.

Touchdown.

Incoming and Outgoing.

One happy flyer.  She wanted to go again but afte waiting over an hour for her turn to get on and a huge crowd of kids waiting for their flight we told her she'd have to wait until the next time they offered free rides.

She loved it!

  9. You bet she loved it!! It's so much more fun riding in a small plane like that than a 747 where you feel like you're just sitting in a cramped living room., sometimes for hours on end. I am so glad she got that opportunity. So nice of you to take her.

  10. My dad was a pilot and as a kid, I grew up riding in small planes piloted by my dad. It was great fun! I still love flying, airports and small planes. What a great opportunity for your granddaughter.

  20. What a fabulous experience! And on such a cute little plane. I'm sure Colleen had a much more exciting time than she'd have had on one of the big jumbo jets that most people travel on. Great photos, Ida and good luck to Colleen for next time! All the best, Bonny

  23. How fun! I remember doing this as a child only we had to pay a penny for every pound we weighed. It was some type of fundraiser. That was the only time I've ever flown. I hope Coleen gets to fly more that I have!!

  26. What a fun adventure for Coleen! We're glad she had the opportunity to take that plane ride!

  27. Looks to me from Colleen's expression that she enjoyed her plane ride quite a bit. We have had a plane for many years and the views from the smaller planes are so much different that the airliners. so glad she got to have this fun experience.

  30. That is such a valuable and happy experience for young people, and I'm glad Coleen got to do it. Our kids did something similar at her age. Isn't it wonderful that pilots and others are willing to do this for kids? Great day :)
