Last Friday, April, Graham, Jocelyn and I drove out to Wellington to watch Justin solo. April’s husband, Max, is Justin’s flight instructor. He wanted us to come out and surprise Justin. He didn’t know we were coming and didn’t realize we were there until he was taxing the plane back in. We didn’t want him to know so he wouldn’t be nervous we were there watching him. He did 5 touch and goes and then landed the plane. I was a little nervous since he was up there flying a plane all by himself, but he did a great job! It was fun to hear him calling in on the radio and that he didn’t even know we were listening. Here are some pictures from the night.

Afterwards, Max and April took us out to dinner to celebrate. I am excited (and super nervous) for when I can go up in the plane with Justin.
