Successful maiden!

Nice takeoff, about 10 circuits of the field, and a nice landing. That was my first ever takeoff and landing with skis, and that was a maiden on a built-up customized model kit.

Beautiful job @Michael!  You had a picture-perfect day.

Now, about the maiden flight:  I have heard about it, and I've seen photos of the plane at the field on skis, but I have not seen any photos of the plane in the air.  What gives?!

I will be at the field tomorrow, camera in hand. I hope you will be there with your Twin Otter.  If you would like, I'd be happy to do some in-flight photos and portraits of you and the Otter.

Cheers!

Andy

Photos (most from Andy). 7 flights so far, including mild aerobatics and touch-n-goes.
