Listen as we talk to the temporary tower that was in place following a busy event. Then, we transition through the busy Tampa Intíl airspace.

Would you fly a powered Hang Glider? Airplane pilots take a ride on a kite. - Just Plane Silly

Would you fly a hang glider? First lets get the semantics out of the way. Hang glider, powered trike, weightshift airplane, whatever you call it, I got to have a flight in one of these things and it was as scary as it was awesome.


Bessie's Diner, Janesville, WI

"New restaurant on field. Very good. THE $100 HAMBURGER! Have you ever gone for a Sunday drive when the weather's nice? Chances are you have, and you probably stopped for a meal or ice cream when you were out. But, have you ever gone for a Sunday flight and stopped for a meal? Since Bessie's Diner is located at the Southern Wisconsin Regional Airport, we see quite a few pilots, like Mary Lou and Arthur, for breakfast and lunch. There are plenty of airport restaurants that also see pilots fly in for a special meal. The one thing that ties Bessie's airborne visitors with other airports' fly-in customers: The $100 Hamburger." - Submitted by Mary Lou
