Last weekend we were having pretty good weather so Justin's dad decided to take his plane out for a spin and he invited us along. I have no idea what kind of plane it is but holy smokes it is small. There were 3 big guys plus me riding in this thing. We put on our headsets, buckled our seat belts, i was told that, no, my seat cushion will not transform into a flotation device in case of an emergency, Justin's dad goes to start the plane and.....nothing. The engine is dead. Well long story short, apparently you can hand start this plane, there is a generator that will kick in in case the engine fails, and no, the engine cannot stop while you are in the air. At least that is what the guys told me to calm me down because i was freakin out by this point.
But Justin's dad has been flying planes for over 25 years i think so i knew i was in capable hands. Plus Justin said if we started to go down we would just throw out the excess weight which would be the 2 guys in front. I wanted to get more pictures but our camera died.
