Mike’s been training like crazy with mentor pilots, but this was his first solo flight, on July 4th (his own personal independence day!!) That thing he’s driving that looks like a giant lawn mower is a tow machine we use to move the plane in and out of the hangar – at 10,500 lbs. you can’t push this baby around by hand. Last but not least, Captain Raney logging in his solo.
The lawnmower is impressive compared to the pitchfork that we used to use to move our Piper Cherokee around.
