Negative Ghostrider the pattern is full
Yesterday at lunch we had a quick visit from this guy. As we were walking out across the parking lot, he passed down the runway at tower level and high speed. Two of us raced for our respective cameras in hopes he would do it again or come in for a landing for close ups. Well, he made the pattern but slowed down, dirtied up (Landing gear and flaps out to land) and made a real approach. He just kissed the runway then popped back up, cleaned up and hit the throttle to accelerate down the runway. Once he got to the end, he pulled up and kicked left for a very sharp turn to stay in the pattern at high speed. It made for a fun start to lunch. Unfortunately he didn't hang around for lunch at Freebirds like they normally do.
