Flew in a Cessna taildragger this morning

Old friend of mine from college who is a pilot for Southwest owns this 66 year old Cessna 170. He took me up this morning for about an hour.

Driving out to the airport I saw a couple of crop dusters doing work in the surrounding farms. I wish I had time to pull over and video them, but did catch them on the ground later.

I love GA almost as much as I love commercial jets… Such pleasant aircraft to fly, especially the vintage ones.

This may be a bit off topic… But does your friend fly the MCI-RSW route? If so he may of been carrying me on his plane
