Another fledgling leaves the nest! Congratulations to Chris Barcelona who soloed Champ 2791E while Blake watched anxiously from the ground. Several excellent takeoffs and landings later Chris was safely back with a gigantic grin on his face.
Well done Chris and Blake.
It does not happen very often, so when he choses to talk it is worth listening. The legendary pilot and the first man to break the sound barrier is giving a talk in nearby Sacramento, and you can fly in to hear him!
