July 16th

I met Shane at the airport, where we flew to Watts-Woodland for their display day.  It's the first time we've been to a display day there, and it was a lot quieter than Colusa, so Shane had a better time than he did on that trip.  The dog-leg as we approach Woodland is me flying around a crop duster :o)

We chatted to various people about various things, and saw various aircraft we've seen in various other places :o)  I did get to meet Bob, Jarron's gyroplane mentor from the Nut Tree, and we're going to talk about what to do with his aircraft.

On the way home, as we were under the Sacramento International Class C step, Chris passed us in his RV-6A, and I shot a short video of it.

I also listened to NorCal approach talking to SouthWest jets about us - we were at ~1000', and were allowed to be up to 1600' so everything was fine.  The first jet went above us at ~2000', and the second jet saw us (we were East of him by then) and said we looked like "a couple of helos" :o)

At home I threw together a video of my landing at Watts-Woodland.
