Up in the air

Last week, Ronny had the opportunity to fly with one of his customers/friends to Kansas to look at some heifers. His friend, Jon (pictured below), owns and flies a 1968  Skyhawk 4-seater plane that they were able to fly right out of Seward.

Ronny wanted me to blog this, mostly because he was so excited for this new experience, but also to brag to me about his “flying experience”. With all of my travels for work, I have to drive an hour and a half, check in my bags, go through security, and wait an hour for my plane to take-off. Ronny left our house at 9:45 am, got to the Seward airport at 9:50 a.m., found Jon and the plane, and took off a little after 10:00 a.m. Jealous. Even better was that he was at his destination in 45 minutes! (Probably not as fancy or fast as your jet ride, Mom & Dad!)

Jon did a swoop through Seward to fly over our neighborhood to get the bird’s eye view.

Jon was even brave enough to let Ronny fly solo for a few minutes.

Ronny says thanks, Jon, for the opportunity, I say thanks for being safe, Jon!

Very cool. Definitely lets you see the land from a different aspect. Pretty soon he'll want his own plane.

We're hoping once Brandon graduates that we'll be able to do the same thing instead of the 3.5 hour drive up to Wahoo to visit family. How fun for you both!
