These are some pictures from February 18th. It was such a great day that I was too tired to post the pictures that night.

Joe Faust and I spent a fun day at Dockweiler today. We alternated flights on my Falcon 195 until the sun was just about to set.

Here's the forecast for the day (which was pretty accurate):
