Just Like a Movie

We went back to SD this weekend and got to see my Dad's airplane for the first time. It was really fun to finally see his hangar and runway - Wms. Field. It was too windy to fly, so we didn't see him in the air, but he took me for a taxi ride (is that the correct terminology?) down the runway. I told him that I felt like I was in a movie, but I didn't elaborate on what movie. So, more specifically Dad, I felt like I was in The Rescuers!

Your plane is much better than an albatross, but I think I thought about the Rescuers because when watching it as a kid I always thought it would be neat to travel on Albatross Airlines, but I knew I never would. So, in the same way, I never thought I'd get to sit in a two-seat airplane and taxi down a runway about 3 miles out of town. It had a Disney-esque surreal kind of feeling.


  1. I asked you mom if it was named "the way i'm going to die."

  2. oh dear...that snaps me out of Disney mode...
