Dune Gooning – Quintana Texas

Mark had an itch to fly the dunes. He picked the perfect day and we joined the Order of the Pelican.

Mark went 1st. After landing at the bottom to change pilots, we learned it was quicker and easier to just top land, but top landing is tricky.

Never have I had flying where you are that intimate with the space between the ground and air. Launch from the basetube was sweet.

On my last flight, I aired it out the entire length of the dunes. Good times! Thanks Mark for making it happen. Thanks Joel for the loan of the F195.
