We got into Moncton yesterday afternoon. Thankfully the front was small that went through over night. The wind had changed to more down the runway but still over 20kts on the ground. It had gotten to over 30 kts that evening right across the runway. We said our good bye and loaded into the sweltering cockpit. The climb out was quick but rough. We immediately headed to my parents place for pictures and really got bounced around down low. We climbed a bit for smoother air and then headed to see the camp on the lake we stayed at. We soon turned south for Moncton.
The air was really rough, annoying rough. We headed for the coast line and viewed all the wonderful beaches passing by. We soon got Moncton tower and got cleared for a straight in on 24. The landing was uneventful and we taxied in amongst many jet traffic on the airport. 32c on the ground. It was a hot taxi.
Jody’s parents were there to great us. The school located a spot for us to tie down and the place was mostly deserted. We were told it was to windy and to low of ceilings, all their flights were canceled. I thought that was a shame. If students only fly in perfect weather they will not know how to deal with the not so perfect weather on cross country flights. I never liked the fact that I learned so much more about flying after I got my license.
I will get pictures of the flight to Moncton as soon as I locate my camera cord;-)
