Denver Night Flight

Night Flight Over
Flown:  August 24, 2001
Aircraft:  Cessna 182 - N92844
Approximate round trip mileage: 73nm
Approximate flying time:  1:18

You may wonder why this small trip would be included here.  A couple reasons.  We were all together, and it was the point where I crossed over 500 flight hours.  Unlike our first night trip with the kids, they stayed awake for this one.  We pretty much flew the identical path that we flew a year prior at night.  Unfortunately, it'd turn out to be our last trip before the events of September 11, 2001, which would ground us for a while, at the time we weren't sure for how long.
