General Aviation Aircraft, two

This is the final set of photos from today at the North Las Vegas Airport. I’ve done some serious cropping to pull the little aircraft in so you can see more detail. I hoped to see a few business jets like the beautiful Gulfstream planes but saw just one small jet. Cessna and Pilatus and others also build some beautiful jets.

My favorite business aircraft has always been the Lear Jet. Many years ago, I tried my hand at flight school to learn how to fly smaller aircraft but obviously, that didn’t happen… I should never have quit that school!

General Aviation Aircraft

This afternoon I took another ride around town and landed at North Las Vegas Airport, a general aviation airport that is different than our huge McCarran International Airport. I tried for some decent photos but the 18-140mm lens was a bit lacking. A 200mm lens or higher would be better.

It’s fun to sit still and tune my ham radio down to the aircraft frequencies and listen to the tower and aircraft talking to each other. The low 80s and a gentle breeze make for a nice time to chill. I’ll have one more set of photos from this location if you want to see them, they aren’t very good photos really.

Good Chicken Soup

Yesterday afternoon I put together a big pot of chicken soup which was delicious this morning! I tend to make the pot too large but it will stay good in the fridgy for a long time, looks delicious, right? 90 degrees is forecast for today, time to fire up the air conditioning again! happy weekend.
