Champ N7569E pilot, Judy, and willing adventure seeker (& sister), Karen, want to share a few pictures we snapped. We spent  2 fun days together flying what seems like “all over” Indiana, Illinois and even a little Missouri .  We tallied up 10 hours 35 minutes of flight time visiting 7 airports,  zipping along at speeds as low as 63 mph all the way to a not too shabby 106 mph.  The goal was “don’t rush, just fly and have fun” and we sure did.

FYI, we’ve got a ladies flyout coming up soon.  Check out the link and send an email if you’d like to join us – only requirement, you’re a lady with a taildragger!!
