#OSH15: Weekend Magic!

THE ULTRA-COOL ULTRALIGHT FIELD!

Our Saturday started with a trip to the ultralight field for a chat with Announcer Pat Schmitz. And then . . . a flight around the patch in an ultralight!Aux Ultra Announce 1

My first-ever solo flight was in a hang glider, so ultralights are dear to my heart. So amazing to see the EAA AirVenture grounds from above! People had already begun to leave our Aviation Mecca, and, sadly, the field was nearly empty, as you can see from this short clip, from my live Periscope broadcast:
