Sunset DTW

The view: Looking southwest while overflying Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW) at sunset.

The pilots: Don Mayer (son) as PIC and photographer and Don Mayer (father) as the passenger/pilot on this particular flight.

The airplane: 1975 Cessna 210L

The mission: Fly as far west as possible (Grand Rapids in this case) to land and let the weather pass before pressing onward to Oshkosh!

The memory: This was our second father/son trip to Oshkosh in our jointly-owned 210 but our first one while flying at sunset, which made for a very memorable view of DTW, downtown Detroit, and the various airports in the area where Dad learned how to fly many years ago.
