Solo Day

The day finally came when all the factors lined up and I was able to go for my first solo flight.

Merilee came out to the airport to watch. I think I scared her with my first landing. Who am I kidding, I scared myself.

I accounted for the cross-wind all the way down my approach, until I touched down. That's when it really mattered. I let the controls go, the wind picked up my wing and very nearly wrecked a sweet first solo flight! The second one was much better.

Thanks for the prayer and support that you've all offered sofar.

I'll post the video as soon as I figure out how.

I'll say more when I get a chance tomorrow.
