Sunday evening I had one of the coolest experiences of my life. Tom Miller (owner of Wilbur's Furniture) invited me to ride along in his two-seater "experimental" plane. As you can see from the picture, there's not a lot to the plane.
But I never felt unsafe. In fact, it was a lot like riding in a balloon (which I've done several times).
Here's how the take-off and first part of the flight looked from my co-pilot seat.
Tom also gave me a tour of the new Branch County Memorial Airport Building, which is a fantastic new facility.
