Thanks for the kind comments, everyone. Yeah, Holly'* definitely my co-pilot babe! It was great to be on our own and have the freedom to cruise around the valley and see the sights.
I'll have to get some good shots of the area dragstrips, Phoenix International Raceway, and the multiple proving grounds that dot the landscape around Phoenix. It'* fun to head out to the southern aerial practice areas, because there are two huge test tracks near the town of Maricopa that we're always flying over for maneuvers. There are many times that you can see different cars, trucks, and SUVs zipping around the turns or doing other kinds of data collecting. Pretty interesting, though I don't know which manufacturers use which tracks.
