December 17, 2006:  Here are more video snapshots from a short flight on this Sunday afternoon.   There is no doubt about this being a country airport when you see the barn adjacent to the runway.   Sometimes there are cows grazing in the field beyond the fence line.

After Wendell landed, I taxied my airplane in a tight turn on the ramp in front of the hangar.  One old fabric fuselage side from the Champ hangs on the wall behind Wendell's Cessna 182.

December 21, 2006: I finally downloaded the GPS ground track from last Sunday's test flight.  It shows my downwind pass over the field after takeoff followed by a round trip to Dalton to check the autopilot above 5,500 MSL in smooth air.
