Here's a nifty old abandoned train bridge north of Paw Paw, West Virginia. I need to go back on the ground and find it.
Here's the shuttered Weirton Steel plant in Weirton, WV. Built in 1909, it used to employ thousands of men. Now like many other aged and inefficient steel plants, it sits virtually unused as we import much of our steel from Japan and Europe. Damned shame.
Heading northwest now, once out from under Pittsburgh's Class B airspace, I let my mom fly for a bit.
Here's another railyard, this time with what appears to be a functional turntable.
And I crossed the lake, going "feet-dry" again at Monroe, Michigan. There I shot a touch-and-go at Monroe Custer just because it was there, and then flew up to Willow Run Airport in Ypsilanti. I just passed overhead there because I had to to get around Detroit's airspace, but the tower guys were nice enough to let me overfly the Yankee Air Museum's outdoor airpark.
And in a parking lot nearby, a Soviet Antonov An-2 biplane transport (Those things were and still are aviation wonder workhorses worldwide) and an F-101 Voodoo jet fighter.
Off to City Airport, this time with a tailwind. Here I am, flying down Six Mile Road at 119 knots over the ground. That's 140mph.
Return flight follows.
