My folks were in town a bit unexpectedly this week for a couple days. While there, my dad and I finally went on the biplane that offers quick little hops out of Boeing Field at the Museum of Flight. My dad’s first degree is in aeronautical engineering and he passed his love of planes directly on to me.

To my surprise, this was not only my first flight in an open-cockpit plane, but his too. It was a total blast.
