A somewhat cold January day for Jacksonville, about 47 degrees - I met my partner Billy Meadows at Herlong Airport and we pulled the Cessna 310 out of the hangar and flew it over to Live Oak, Florida (Suwannee County Airport, 24J). I grew up in Live Oak and had my first student pilot flight there about 45 years ago with Billy Dekle as my first flight instructor - thank you Billy! It is about a 25 minute flight from Jacksonville to Live Oak against the west wind. We averaged about 200 MPH going over and about 215-220 heading back. Live Oak has a 4,000 foot long by 75 foot wide runway just on the West side of the city. Live Oak has a population of about 6,000 people. My brother Jimmy and his wife Jackie moved back to Live Oak from Bonita Springs, Florida several years ago and built a house on 20 acres right off the approach end of runway 7. Jimmy used to fly too - he told me his last flight was in 1985 - and back then he flew a Cessna 310! As soon as we landed I called Jimmy and he came over and we got to visit for a few minutes. Then Billy and I started the 310 back up and flew back to Jacksonville. It was a wonderful, smooth flight going and coming. Full stall landing with stall horn blaring on the landing in Jacksonville but the camera battery had gone dead and it will be recorded only in our memories! After getting back I drove over to my "Junior Partner" and nephew, Ryan McFarland's house. He and his wife Brianna who is a nurse at UF Health Hospital (formerly known as Shands) just moved into their brand new home in Springfield. Caroline had baked homemade brownies and we watched the Titans Chiefs game. What a wonderful day. God has given us another day to be thankful for.
