Skaneateles (prounounced “skinny atlas”) is in upstate New York, not far from Syracuse and Ithaca. We visited Mike’s pilot training buddy, Jack Haggerty, who gave us each a ride in his 1929 Brunner-Winkle Bird biplane. We took off and landed from a grass strip, and flew about 500 ft above ground level over the Finger Lakes. It was loud, breezy and a kick in the pants!
