Maddie’s First Airplane Ride with Deeter the Pilot.Posted: May 27, 2009
On Monday, we decided to go for a hike along the old O&W Railroad right of way that runs through Wurstboro. Somewhere on the way there, we saw a plane flying low landing at Wurtsboro airport. Laurie suggested we go watch the planes land at airport. We parked the car and strolled over to the main area where they had an old Air Force plane on the tarmac being serviced by a guy that looked like cooter from Dukes of Hazard.
We were greeted by Dane, a nice enough guy that is stuck working at an empty airport on a holiday. He asked us if we wanted to take a ride. At first we thought he was talking about the ol Air Force plane that kept stalling. But then he pointed at this plane:
After we flew over our house a couple of times, it was time to head off to Middletown. Laurie wanted to get a couple of good pictures where she works to hang in her office.
The picture above will look nice framed up on her new office wall, as soon as it is built. After the fly over Laurie’s work, Madaghan put in a request from the backseat to see her school.
After we snapped some pictures of Maddie’s school, it was time to head back. I have a video of our landing. The noise you hear in the background is not Maddie screaming although it sure sounds like it. Not really sure what it was actually, but Laurie reports that Maddie was not terrified.
