My son Mike went to Montgomery County Airpark today to take an introductory flight lesson my wife and I gave him for his birthday. The weather was perfect. My wife Candy went along to take some pictures of his first flight from the ground but ended up going along for the flight, thanks to the gracious flight instructor Tom of Washington International Flight Academy.
