I had the extreme pleasure of flying with Dick Butler today along side his new Concordia. His new ship is absolutely gorgeous! The weather was fabulous with a 6,000′ cloudbase, 5 kt lift and nice streets. Ted Beckwith gave us a tow and we were off flying in the local area while DB flies off his first hours.
Sorry for the quality of the photos … best I could do with my Android since my good point and shoot camera was dead.
The Concordia was climbing well and cruising even better. Butler, Waibel, Boermans and Dillinger have done a amazing job and clearly (at least to me) the Concordia is a success.
A great day indeed. Here I am putting away my ship by moonlight.
