John Zimmerman has recently written an article for Air Facts that recounted some of his best flights and also mentioned a recent book written by Flying magazine editor Lane Wallace entitled: “Unforgettable: My 10 Best Flights.” Lane has flown plenty of interesting flights from the Swiss Alps to Key West and she has flown these flights in just about everything from a Piper Cub to a U-2 spy plane.
With that book in mind, John was looking through his logbook one day for his insurance renewal and what should have taken twenty minutes took three hours. Hence, he’s actually glad that the FAA makes him write everything down.
John’s rather lengthy list of best flights included the following:
- Flying to the Bahamas
- Taking a ride in a Waco at dawn (and at Oshkosh!)
- First turboprop PIC flight
- Flying a seaplane in Florida
Apparently that’s just the start of John’s list but then again, he is a Vice President at Sporty’s Pilot Shop or he’s just plain lucky to have plenty of time to fly!
With John’s list in mind, we want to ask you our readers, especially those based in the UK or on the continent: What were your best flights? Feel free to tell us in the comments section below.
