We flew the 8 to Key West, FL!
After stopping in Naples for some cheap fuel, we headed on down the coast and launched off toward Marathon, Fl.
Once we hit Marathon, we turned SW and tracked the Overseas Hwy to Key West. Here is a pic of the famous Seven Mile Bridge along that route.
After landing, Lori is in disbelieve that we are here. She can't believe that we just flew 750sm in an airplane that was built in our basement! We turned a 15hr car drive into a 4 hr flight. :)
I must admit, I'm still amazed at how Awesome this aircraft really is. It truly is a "Total Performance" aircraft.
