Paul 'Bear' Bryant, my brother from another mother, finally got me into the sky in his beautifully built Lightning experimental aircraft. We took off from Clearwater and flew a short hop to St. Petersburg's Albert Whitted Field where we had a great breakfast with other pilots. Paul had the opportunity to share his plane with some of the guys there. After breakfast, we flew along the coast and then back to PIE. I had the chance to fly the aircraft and she flies as great as she looks. By the way, the entire video was shot with my iPhone and edited in Final Cut Pro. So, the plane gets and 'A' and the photographer gets a kick in the propeller!
