Two float planes stop, fuel up
By Tiffany Tully/FBO Manager—
CHILDRESS – Friday, Oct. 16, two Cessnas and a Piper Cherokee practiced locally.
Saturday, Oct. 17, a Cessna 150 took off.
Sunday, Oct. 18, a Beechcraft Bonanza flew in from Graham with a Golden Retriever for company, and a Cessna 172 stayed overnight.
Monday, Oct. 18, a Cessna 172 departed, and a local Beechcraft Bonanza returned.
Wednesday, Oct. 21, a Robinson R-44 helicopter dropped in for fuel, and Boedeker Flying Service kept the runway hot, flying all day. We had not one but two planes on floats stop in for fuel today! My personal favorite, a shiny red Waco with a radial engine, was on his way from Seminole back to his home base in Michigan. The second was also a radial (that’s enough to make your heart go pitter-pat); a De Havilland Beaver being delivered all the way across the country from New York to Washington. The Beaver was designed, based on input from the pilots that would be flying it, to be the ultimate bush plane.
