Summer Evening @ Goose Creek Airport
Back on July 25th, 2012 I made a short visit over to the local little airport; just hanging out with the friendly folks and snapping a few random pictures of the airplanes on the field to share with y'all.
I hope you like them. Microsoft FS2004 / 9.1update
The quiet little country airport of Goose Creek... home of Pressley Aviation.
I've been working on my flight training in this Cessna 172. It's fairly well used as you can see by it's worn and faded paintjob, but it still flies good enough and is well maintained mechanically.
This guy had just flown into the airport earlier in the day. I really liked his airplane colors!
They gave me a quick ride in the 1946 Piper Cub that's available for rental while I was there that afternoon, and I snapped this aerial shot of the airport as we flew around the circuit.
I love this older 1960's Cessna 172 Skyhawk that was parked in the service area. It's retro colors and paint scheme reminded me of the old rubber-powered freeflight model airplane kit offered by the Paul K. Guillow's Co. in the model hobby shops I visited as a young kid.
Do any of you remember that model of the Cessna Skyhawk?
(Green is a color not often seen as much as you'd think in the FS planes these days)
Some stuffy, upper-class jock who acted as if he 'owned' the place showed up in a beautifully maintained Beechcraft Bonanza while I was at the airport. If it weren't for his uppity attitude, I'd have gotten closer to his plane for some better pictures, but he was a real 'piece-of-work' and I decided to keep my safe distance.
Anyway, after that I decided to head back home for a great dinner of grilled chicken and saute'd fresh vegetables. I remember it was a wonderful way to end a fun afternoon spent at the local airport.
Thanks for viewing. -Glenn
