The Phoenix Lands at the Lake of the Ozarks

Flew my Zenith Cruzer from Denver, Colorado to a fly-in on the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri 7/2020. Great group of people to hang with for the weekend even though it was very hot and humid. I even managed to bring home a Missouri tick not found till the following night. The little blood sucker!

The takeoff at the end was really impressive. First time I've ever seen a plane get airborne with zero airspeed. I'd like to hear about that sunshade too.

Enjoyed your video!  I notice you have a Koger sunshade.  How do you like it?  Some pics and a write-up would make a great forum topic! HINT!  :>)
