Oct. 8 ï¿½ My Waco flying experience can only be best described in two words: adrenaline rush. I went barnstorming with Mike Hanson at Biplane Rides located at Daugherty Field in Long Beach, California. Mike asked what I would like to get from this four-hour block of instruction in the Waco. I was quick to answer: a few stalls, spins, spin recovery, unusual attitude recovery, steep turns, and possibly some acrobatics! We did it all! I had the time of my life! While in-flight, I informed Mike via our headsets, "I've died and gone to heaven!" Mike answered, "No way, buddy, you are alive and well, your just having a Waco experience! However, it's going to be difficult to get that smile off your face for the next few weeks!" Thank you again, AOPA!
