Day in the Sky happened on the 18th. 451 people flew with 47 pilots and planes in 170 flights. It was quite a day! I got in five loads in between my hand wringing and coordinating with different groups. Several of Liz's students got rides and I saw mostly smiles and appreciation from parents/family. The air over Watsonville was filled with airplanes and NorCal air traffic control was amazed at what was happening. The pilots and ground crews did a great job keeping everyone safe. But next year... not so many planes/flights. Or somehow spread it out more evenly.
