I’ve recently read a book, titled ‘Flight of Passage’, written by Rinker Buck, which recounts the events that he and his brother encountered in 1966, when they flew across the Continental United States in a Piper Cub. Inspired by this, I decided to undertake the same flight, in the underused XCub that is available to us in Infinite Flight. I dragged along @Errigal for the flight, and it’s turned out to be fun! From our start in Morristown, New Jersey, we will be flying to John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California. Enjoy!
Route: KMMU - PN73
Parked at Morristown, getting the FPL together. I am in the Red and White, while @Errigal flies the EAA 50th.
After a short takeoff roll, and a circle around the field, we get to the FPL, and try some formation flying (as a flight of 2)
Turning west after a short southern leg from Morristown
Past the Pennsylvania-New Jersey border, and Errigal breaks off to the left
After a short stop in Butter Valley (7N8), PN, we’re off for a short flight to Bally Spring Farm (PA35)
Sitting at Bally Spring, for a short lunch/coffee break
Heading west again, for our final stop of the day in Beers Farm (PN73)
Flying in a tight formation with the small, but powerful, XCub
After some mediocre landings, the XCubs are parked, and all turned off
