I thought I’d share some pictures I took on a quick jaunt up to Ridgely Field, MD (East of BWI and north of Easton, MD) out of my new home airport, Potomac Field, MD.
It was a rather cold day and VERY choppy below 3,000′. I got banged up pretty good until I could finally get out from underneath all the Class B airspace in the DC FRZ & SFRA. Those heavy guys hog up all the airspace! (The guilty know who they are…) :)
Here are some pics I took as I headed back to Potomac on a south-westerly course across Eastern Bay (just southeast of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge that crosses from Annapolis to points east), across the Maryland shoreline on the Chesapeake. In a lot of the shots you can see the small, distinctly-shaped Poplar Island, which is a great landmark when hopping across the Chesapeake. As you can see, just about every bit of the water was frozen, making this flight look like an Antarctic adventure!
Hope you enjoy these!
And here she is, all snugly tied down and put away back home.
