Flying Around Charlotte

I took a few pictures of downtown Charlotte while flying exposure the other day. As you may have noticed by now, I really like taking pictures of different downtown landscapes. From the air, the rising buildings of downtown are always the most impressive landmarks no matter where you are.

Friday also marked my first flight in the Snoopy 1 airship. In case you were wondering, it is exactly the same airship as Snoopy 2. They both are A60+ airships with Rotax engines and matching decals on the envelopes. However despite being the same type of blimp, each one has a slightly different feel at the controls. It usually doesn't take very long, but there is always an initial adjustment to get the feel of the ship.
