I had a chance to go flying in a light plane today.... Cessna 177 .... great day with warm still air (11 celcius at 2500 ft).

Up from St.Andrews airport to Gimli MB ... a high fly by and a low pass over the runway ... remarkable speed from an underpowered little plane when you power on a 1200 foot descent with full throttle!

We took our time wandering about the west shore line of Lake Winnipeg and testing the bank and turn capabilities of the 177.  Also, the lake seems to be still covered with ice from the Delta Marsh to as far as the eye can see north.

Forgot to take my camera though.....
