Testing the autopilot on the ILS approach Runway 36R at Cecil Field, Florida KVQQ. William Kent, pilot, Francesco Ausenda, CFII (Florida Flyers Flight School, St. Augustine) in the right seat, and Wayne Henderson, former Navy A7 carrier pilot and CFII, in the back seat.
It was a beatiful late fall afternoon, the day before Thanksgiving, November 24, 2010.
After we tried three approaches we did a full stop and taxied to the FBO for a coke and popcorn.
While we were there two Marine Corps F-18s landed and taxied up to the FBO. We got ear plugs and went out and watched them, then got to talk to the pilots and even got a look inside the F-18. That was a thrill.
