San Juan Islands a Birdseye view

Yesterday I had the opportunity to go on a small plane ride over the San Juan Islands.  This was a first time experience for me.  A co-worker built an RV-7 from scratch.  It took him about 4 years to finish.  He has had the plane in the air since last March.   He offered to take me to lunch from Seattle to San Juan’s for my Birthday and of course I could not turn it down 🙂  Normally a trip to the San Juan’s in a vehicle will require at minimum 5 hours of travel time.  This includes waiting for ferries to take you across to the islands one at a time.  These are a few pictures from my adventure yesterday.  Chad was a great host and taught me a lot about general aviation that I never knew before.   I hope you enjoy these pictures.

This is the RV-7 that Chad built. The full story and history of this plane can be found here >>
