Thanks Dave but I think I've been trumped...
My intentions were not to trump anyone, this is actually the first time I've posted one of my air to airs of this fine machine. Just wanted to show Melikian getting a ride, and after we broke off, Melikian took over flying the plane.
Jay, I haven't been up there in a few weeks, so if your pictures are recent, than I was at Vertical Challenge in San Carlos last weekend. See: https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthread.php?t=713974
apologies..........."new guy" Roger
