Where I stayed
The Skirvin Hilton
4 hours 20 minutes later, after beating to windward with a 20 kt headwind, I descended through a cloud layer to break out at 1200ft for a visual approach into another new airfield.
I,ve now become younger by another hour as I passed another time zone. The first thing I ask after landing (after where,s the toilet ?) is what time is it?
Refueled and tied down, all within 15minutes.
The USA have a radio call sign, "Uni com", which seems exclusive to them, which is for the use of the refueling contractor, which a landing aircraft calls and arranges fuel parking etc, as you are taxing in!
I enjoyed a very good dinner at the Skirvin Hilton, with a relaxing glass (or was it two ?) of quality Chianti, an hour or so to upgrade these notes, and off to bed for a well earned rest. Tomorrow I shall explore a new city. I,ll let you know how I get on.
