Beautiful Day in the PNW

Here’s video from a short flight on a beautiful autumn afternoon in the A36 Bonanza from Boeing Field (KBFI) to Tacoma Narrows (KTIW) for a late lunch at the Hub restaurant. Enjoy the scenery.

On a short flight from Arlington, WA (KAWO) back to Boeing Field (KBFI) in Seattle, I enjoyed views of Puget Sound and downtown Seattle. Here are some video highlights.

The Secret of Flight–Dr. Alexander Lippisch

Thanks to the efforts of Dr. Catherine Cavagnaro, The University of Iowa has published The Secret of Flight, a series of 14 videos now on YouTube about the science and engineering of flight.

You can read Dr. Cavagnaro’s column about these videos in the November 2019 issue of AOPA Pilot Magazine, here.

Here’s the introduction video:

The host is Dr. Alexander Lippisch, a German scientiest and engineer who was part of Project Paperclip, the effort to bring top German scientists and engineers to the U.S. immediately after WWII.

Cavagnaro is a professor of mathematics, a flight instructor, and a designated pilot examiner. She also writes a monthly column for AOPA Pilot.
