The $10,000 Hamburger

Pilots all know about the $100 hamburger. Five bucks for the burger, ninety-five for the transportation. Today, DC and I begin our quest for the $10,000 burger.

We were set to go to Memphis at first, but we decided instead on St. Louis. This morning we were greeted with heavy fog, and no real choices but to sit and wait. But the fog is lifting nicely, and the official flight test should be underway in just a few minutes. Assuming all goes well, the autopilot does its job, etc, then we should be off about 11AM.

Now, we are back to deciding on Memphis, to avoid the strongest headwinds. Headwinds no matter what, so we may only average about 80 knots across the ground. But the straight flight to St. Louis would be closer to 65-70 knots.

Anyway, the excitement builds. Anything significantly west of here by the end of the day would be fine with us.

More details to follow, when there is something to report. And so, the quest begins.

Don't know whether he had a hamburger or not, but I just heard that he's made it to somewhere around the middle of the county. I'll let him post the details. -elizabeth
