Default Took my nephew on his first non-commercial flight

I took my nephew on his first private flight. He’s in CAP at 14 soon to be 15, hoping to go to Colorado Springs. Great kid. I was lazy, I made him fly about 2/3 of the flight. He was better than I was on my first flight. Nice touch. . Now if somebody could tell me how to rotate pictures……

Open the pic on your PC with photo editing software. Find the "rotate" control and rotate the pic. Save it. When you go to the attachment paperclip browse for it and it will be rotated. I saved your pic in the original format then rotated it. When you click on it it will magically rotate and enlarge.

Crash, which landing and position lights do you have? They look good; lots of light out front.

Wait, are you the original sweepstake winner or did the original winner sell it right away?

so if you take a picture with an iphone and then load it directly to this website, some of the data is stripped, like the orientation. I found that if you take the picture with the long ways of the camera horizontal, and the lens up, then the picture posts properly. If loaded from a computer, all the picture data is apparently kept, so computer uploads dont have this problem. JMHO

The NAV and strobe lights are from Whelen. I don’t know the model but I attached a photo.

The landing lights are FlyLED Seven Stars.
