Waco Cross Country

What a way to kick off summer. As mentioned in the last post a two ship Waco Cross Country adventure went down over a 17 day period. Ship #1 N29904 departed Wausau Wisconsin the evening of May 13th. Over the next 2.5 days N29904 worked its way to Las Vegas Nevada where ship #2 N29352 was roosted up. We met for lunch in Kingman Arizona and flew into Vegas as a two ship for a couple days of R&R. After Vegas is was to Los Angeles where time was spent flying the city taking in the sites. With several stops and a few detours for sightseeing along the way we worked our way north to Portland Oregon and then east homeward bound.

Ship #1, N29904 piloted by Keith Kocourek recorded 4,739 Miles, 40 Airports, 47.9 hrs flight time in 17 days with zero mechanical discrepancies. Ship #2  piloted by Ben Redman recorded 36 hours flight time experiencing one mechanical discrepancy, a leaky brake line on the right side. Both aircraft were remanufactured by RARE Aircraft Ltd.

A a couple photos of the adventure posted here. Stay tuned for a slide show of the entire trip. Thanks for checking in and for the support of all who made this adventure possible and memorable.
