First Passenger: Finding Bel-Air Minsk

I took my sister, Isabell, flying today. She was my first passenger! We headed North and were on a mission to find a little place we used to spend our summers as kids. It was called Bel-Air Minsk. Most of the buildings had been leveled since then and the property was sold off.

We headed up toward the Huguenot VOR. Once we passed it, we turned onto the 306 radial. I also tuned in Stillwater VOR for a 15 degree radial. I figured we’d be right over it at that intersection. It took a couple of turns, but we managed to spot it. Isabell took a few photos.

Mission accomplished. Time for lunch. We stopped at Greenwood Lake on the way back and ate at the restaurant there, which happens to have a scrap Lockheed Constellation built into the building.

We headed back to Caldwell and wrapped up our Sunday journey.
