Frio County Air Port 2015
CHRISTMAS BREAKFAST FLIGHT 2005.
The photo below is 7327J in Flight toward Canton Texas to partake in a traditional breakfast.
Two friends carrying on a 5 yr tradition. Christmas morning is a very special occasion to start with. To be in the air on Christmas,
well, Oh GOD! No other way to describe it.. To descend into a hometown and spread the Christmas spirit in the form of a roaring
aircraft engine and the landing gear brushing the tree tops, nothing like it. To land at a friends airstrip and have a traditional
breakfast, just doesn't get any better.. But to be met with a "Jesse Thompson Toast" will last a life time.
One family having Christmas, father and daughter preparing biscuits and gravy, said "here comes VR" while another member
trying to get outside to wave. At same time, a sister a 40 acre distance away, calls and says "VR just flew over".
These people are friends and I was able to effect their Xmas a little. This all took place around 7:00am barely sunrise.
6:20 am Christmas morning approxamatley 5 miles off of Run Way 35 Longview KGGG. Altimeter @ 4500ft. Slight NW
headwind. Dallas, glowing at the top of the horizon. Unbelievable.
