5 1/2 Hour Flight to Nebraska

Pat got asked to fly a Sessna 172 out to Kearney Nebraska. He has taken planes to Arizona before, but this flight was the longest he has been on. We randomly decided to have me go and everything fell into place to have me go. The guy he was flying the plane out there for, had just bought the plane. When he found out I was coming along he offered to pay for my plane ticket home as well as our hotel room for the night. He was already going to pay for Pat's plane ticket so we were way excited to know we were going to have a free trip. Once we got there he also gave us $200 to go out with and gave us a car to drive around in. He totally hooked us up and took care of us. We had so much fun and felt so spoiled!

We Got pretty bored after a while.
This is flying over Nebraka. As you can see there was ALOT to look at. =)I started to miss the mountains. There was NOTHING to look at!This was our plane on the way home. We flew on a Beach 1900D. He carried 19 passengers and on our flight there was only a total of 4. It was interesting. It was a nice little get away, but I doubt I will do it again. Atleast not that far. I got pretty sick. The head sets squeeze your head so I got a bad head ache and the turbulence made me very nausious.
