Arrived at Fredericksburg, VA
Nancy and I arrived safely at Stafford Regional Airport (KRMN) in Fredericksburg, VA this afternoon. We had a great send-off from our Delaware 99s chapter at my hangar. Then the local ABC Channel 6 News showed up to interview us and film our departure. Rumor has it that we made the 6:00pm news coverage on TV. Guess Nancy and I got our 15 seconds of fame.
The weather was slowly improving as we departed the Wilmington Airport (KILG). We had 500' ceilings and flew most of the flight in IMC conditions, which stands for Instrument Meteorological Conditions, meaning we flew in the clouds. We were vectored around the north and west side of Washington, DC and over Dulles Airport.
Enroute at 8000'
We passed our Credentials Registration, then waited for a couple of hours for the Airplane Logbook inspection. The physical airplane inspection will be in the morning. Hopefully all will go well tomorrow.
We ended the evening having dinner with about 15 fellow racers. It was great to reconnect with friends from the 2012 race and meet some new first time racers. We had women from California, Texas, Alabama, North Carolina and even The Netherlands at our table.
Have a safe flight! Great photos! See you soon!
