2013-Jul-13 : Flyout to CAF Pancake Breakfast (MOD)
We met at the HWD wash rack for an early flyout on Saturday July 13, 2013. Our planned meeting time
was 9:00 am to depart at 9:30, which was not very early due to the ever-anticipated marine layer. I
was on the way to the airport at 7:30 am since we had one plane that needed to leave early, and I wanted
to ensure selected passengers were there. I was pleasantly surprised to see clear skies. It was a great
morning for a flyout.
The Commerative Airforce Pancake Breakfast is a well-organized operation. There was plenty to eat. There
were eggs (fried or scrambled), bacon, pancakes (pecan or plane), beans, fruit, beans, and biscuits with
gravy. We had a table all set up for us, complete with “VAA #29” banners to make us feel welcome. I ate
so much that I felt I needed to recalculate weights and balance before flying back!
