Dave, where in NE Oregon are you passing through?  La Grande?  Joseph or Enterprise?  Let me know where and what your ETA is and I'll try and connect in flight for some photos (from my 750 of course).

Hi Dave,  I used to live on Winding Road in Friendswood not far from you.  I got my private license in 1976 at Clover Field (now called Pearland Regional Airport).  I fly N701TX now in Burnet, TX. Good luck on you flight.

Summary of Day 1 (or is it the day before day 1?) by Jan Eggenfellner of Viking:

Hi Dave,


Your doing is what I like. We have done similar in Europe but with a glider. A wonderfull experience.

Present time you are near El Paso. This remember me to my training with the air defence missile Nike Hercules at the German Airforce Air defence School.

Especially interesting that you fly powered by a Viking 130. At this time we are doing our first jumps with our Zodiak 605XLs, also powered by Viking 130.

For your flight home and for every flight you will do in future

Allways happy landings and greetings vom Germany
