this is amazing! I’ve never been to a flash flight before, definitely coming

Seems like a blast. I plan on attending. If anyone would like to plan a “flight of” rules flight (formation) feel free to PM me! I’ll try and get a group and we can plan it. :)

Great! A GA flash flight

GA flash flight, wooo!

“Wheels up”

Ah yes the perfectly capable thing for my 172. Unless it’s referring to just being in the air.

Sadly can’t join as it is too late in the night when I have school next day. Will be landing in Honolulu at this exact time though… god help me…

If you land hard enough anything is possible.

Also, yes, it is just an aviation term for the departure time

About 50 of you will start, and about 3 will end. Place your bets 😂

Can’t wait I’m joining from Australia

Today also marks 79 years since the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Aloha from Hawaii!
