I’ve been working with a private pilot friend recently setting up a stock photo shoot. In the process we’ve naturally talked quite a bit about airplanes. This has brought back memories of the plane our family had when I was a kid, so I thought I’d share it here.

In today’s capture you can see my dad taxiing the plane, a Cessna 172, before takeoff. To the best of my knowledge this was taken around 1982 from our boat in Big Lake Alaska. I will say that growing up in Alaska and having a floatplane in the family made for some great times.
