Over the Hudson

The last post made me nostalgic for aviation. My PPL medical has expired and I haven't flown for a couple of years. This was taken heading north up the Hudson in the early nineties.

The US was the best place to fly. You could hire a plane from Teeterborough, just north of NY City. After a brief checkout flight, you were away. Compared to London, where I got my licence, the air restrictions were minimal.

When the twin towers fell I cried for days. The loss of life was terrible and so was the inevitable loss of freedom to follow.
