Fly-free Sky


One of my brothers and his wife are visiting for Christmas.  It’s so much fun having them over.  One of the things we (especially my kids) have been anticipating is his taking us flying.  He is a flight instructor and he promised to fly us over the farm and the area.  We were going to go out on Tuesday, and he took his check-flight and everything, but the plane he had reserved was broken (they found out when they were still on the ground).  So we stayed safely down.  Wednesday was rainy and not great for flying.  SO, the plan to post a flying Skywatch was nixed.

SO, the backup picture is one my daughter took with her new Christmas camera.  Just this morning.  Over the farm.  And the cows.  And the not-lately-seen pond.  I know you’ve been missing it dreadfully.  The sky is perfectly clear today.  Would be a great flying day, but we’ll be stuffing ourselves and enjoying family and opening presents.  Hopefully the weather obliges us tomorrow so next week you can have a fly-sky-watch.

You can see other Christmas Sky pictures from around the world by visiting here.  Maybe you can join too – so we can see YOUR sky!

    I’m sorry to hear you couldn’t take off to make some shots from above. On the other hand it’s great the plane was out of order before take off. :-)
    It’s nice to see your pond again.
    I hope you’ll fly one of these days.
    Merry Christmas and enjoy your holidays.

    Merry Christmas one day later. I enjoyed your lovely photo and that pond too!!! You can send as many pictures of it as you want because I wish I had a pond on my place like that, believe me. It’s a beautiful pond! Happy New Year.

    We haven’t seen a good flying day since I can remember. Besides, our plane is in the hanger waiting for a new throttle cable. We discovered it on the last good flying day, of course. I invite you to come visit my “Sunshine Coast” snow warning. — Margy

    Such a lovely and clear sky. Even though a flying SKW would have been absolutely smashing this one is a nice photo too and it’s lovely that it was taken with your daughters new gift camera.
    Whishing you happy sky flying and a happy new year too.
