Hal Roberts submitted this photo and note: “In June 2022 I flew with Kevin D’Angelo in his Shark SeaRey from his home airport in Hamburg, N.Y. The plan was to meet up with several other SeaReys and float planes for some $100 seafood at Galene’s on Conesus Lake in New York’s Finger Lakes. We hadn’t been 10 minutes in the air when Kevin said he was going to get some gas. We dove (literally) down to land on this postage stamp piece of grass behind a Kwik Fill gas station in Strykersville and proceeded to join the cars and fill ‘er up. You can only imagine the stares from the non-flying vehicles.”
Megan, a commercial pilot candidate in Arizona, writes: I’ve just been introduced to accelerated stalls, and it made me wonder if there is such a thing as a decelerated stall.

One beautiful day in the summer of 2022 we met up at Dean Memorial Airport (5B9) in Haverhill, New Hampshire, to have a picnic lunch. My father has been in aviation my entire life and in 2008 he took on the additional role of my flight instructor. Now since we live in different states, we have found this is a fun way to meet up, visit, and see new sites. As we were both preparing to depart to return to our respective home bases, my wife took this picture of the two planes sitting together.”
