KPAO FAA ATC control tower... getting the windows washed. The folks that work here are the absolute best. Nice to finally see faces to the helpful / friendly voices I hear on the radio (windows are usually behind sunscreens).

This Mooney private airplane was on a charity "Angel Flight" transporting an ill 16-year-old girl and her mother from Redding, California to Palo Alto for treatment at Stanford on Tuesday. The airplane bounced down the runway several times striking the prop and then attempted a "go-around" but was unable to climb. The pilot couldn't make it back to the runway and crashed nearby, killing the pilot. RIP.

(Leslie Salt Company’s salt ponds that were taken over by the feds in 1972 and managed as bird habitat in part. These placid pools look artificially dyed, exhibiting a series of shocking colors: neon orange, rusty red and more. On a fall or winter day, the ponds are replete with birds, many of them migrants en route from the Arctic or South America)

“We’ve got 24 hours a day, seven days a week to fill,” says studio manager Mike Wallace. “And my goal is to bring on as many new shows as we can.”

Following any significant investment in life (finance, relationships, projects, career, etc), there usually comes a time of testing, trial. We spent weeks working on this panel upgrade, cautiously connecting probably 200+ wires that all had to go to exactly the right places or we'd risk damaging some very expensive equipment. But there comes a time where all you can do is hold your breath and flip the switch. It will either work or it won't. It's easy to be afraid of these moments in life -- so much safer to not expose weakness or failure. But there can be no victory in hesitation. Whatever you're shying away from: Go For It. Because only in the moments of trial can you progress; regardless of the outcome: soaring to new heights or repairing the damage.

It’s National Aviation Day, in the US. If you have an interest in aviation and feel like following my aircraft-centric posts, head over to my aviation account (@martingisborne_aviation )...

It’s National Aviation Day, in the US, today. None other than Franklin D. Roosevelt issued a Presidential proclamation declaring August 19th a day to celebrate the magic of flight. Now I know I post a lot of military aviation pictures, here, because there’s something about the development of the jet fighter that ignited my schoolboy soul. Like many kids I grew up wanting to fly fighters in the Royal Air Force but a visit to an optometrist when I was about 10 years old scuppered those plans. Essentially my love of airplanes is a love of flight. There is something deeply magical about being in the air and that feeling is magnified many times over by being in the air in a small airplane. So, to commemorate this National Aviation Day, I thought I’d share a picture of one of my favourite aviators during one of the most beautiful flying experiences I’ve ever had. This is Dominique, she was my flying instructor when I was learning to fly out of KPAO in Palo Alto, California. We had so much fun together and this was a simply stunning night when we headed out towards the pacific and enjoyed a breathtaking sunset over Half Moon Bay. And why, you might ask, is August 19th designated as National Aviation Day? Well, Orville Wright was born on August 19th 1871 and was still alive when FDR made his proclamation…

One year ago today @max.trescott helped me tick off a bucket list item!
With Max looking after the radios, I got to fly past only 3nm from SFO, over the Golden Gate Bridge, the Rock and a little way down the California coastline.

I could then add an N reg aircraft and a K code airport to my logbook. 👍

Thanks once again Max!
