Student Pilot Journal Podcast #33

A flight to an Aircraft Salvage Yard.....

There is something really fascinating about a salvage yard for aircraft.  It must be morbid curiosity for me as I look at the junked fuselages and think about their previous flights and owners.  Where are they? I imagine the planes coming off of the assembly line at one point all shiny and new.....What was their final flight? We had a good time this day.  On approach we were busily looking for the grass strip of zero two foxtrot alpha. It is not easy to spot when everything else is green around it. With my iPad in hand I was ready to help my friend Roy navigate the short 56nm trip.  No stick time for me....and I was perfectly content with technology at my side.
