Here are some pictures from flying around Cincinnati and a trip up to Put-in-Bay




Ready to go!






Some foggy valleys....views like this are why I fly!




Was going to fly to LEX, but decided against it when stuff started popping up on NEXRAD



PFD shot



NKY, Ohio River, Ohio




Sometimes it's nice being up there alone....



A barge on the river



One the way up to Put-in-Bay, we saw this. We think it was a Honda test track. It looked fun.



Flying along the northern "coast" of Ohio



Looks like the ocean!



Arriving at Put-in-Bay



Parallel to the runway



This airport has some serious pucker factor. Note the large monument just outside the base leg. There are also fairly large trees near each end of the runway. Runway length is 2870'.

Thanks man! It definitely is weird being in Ohio and seeing islands like that. That was my first of (hopefully) many trips up to the lake.

Great shots!

I took a field trip to Put-in-Bay with my class when I was in the fifth grade. We took a coach bus to Sandusky and then the ferry to the island. As soon as we got off the boat, the sky opened up on us and we all got drenched. We drove by that airport on the tour of the island, saw and did a bunch of other stuff. We even went into the caves where it was like 50 degrees and we were still wet from the downpour, so needless to say, we were freezing our butts off. It was still awesome.

I have been to put-in-bay on a few occasions, it seems the whole island is there for one big party. Great Shots!

Nice pics and quick question regarding this:



That looks to be a Sporty's Sweepstakes C172. Did you win it or are you putting hours on the plane I am going to win this year.....:mad: :D

Haha! Yep, that's this year's Sweepstakes plane. I'm an employee, so I fly it from time to time.

Cool!

I was planning on stopping there for a while after I go to Cedar Point on Monday (6/30) and then flying home on 7/1, I might even check out all of those little islands out there If I have the time. :)
