Last weekend, four of us (Charlie, Marji, John and I) flew from Palo Alto to Mexicali (KPAO to MMML) on our way to Baja California to see the grey whales. Our pilot was
Charlie Jackson, Sun Labs’ Webmaster. Our Cessna 182 Skylane II was one of four private planes on the trip from the Shoreline Flying Club.
Photos were taken with a Nikon CoolPix S510 camera with an 8G SDHC photo card.
We took about 1,400 photos on the 4 day trip. The photo card was about 1/3 full
when we got home (two lithium ion batteries recharged per day). Here are pictures of our first Air Charlie flight, starting before dawn on 15 February 2008.
