Yesterday Frank Eigler flew me from Raleigh to Toronto in his twin engine plane, a Piper Aztec. It was my first trip in a small plane, and wow - what an experience. This is what you see out the window. A little in-flight incident gave Frank an opportunity to show off what a cool cat he can be under pressure. Three cheers for twin engine planes and quick thinking!
Earlier in the day I attended a face-to-face meeting of Red Hat gcj users and hackers (including tromey, aph, bryce, gbenson, fitzsim and more), so it was a real banner day.
