Flew to “Alex City” in Alabama today to go meet a fellow Delta guy, Tom Hollywood Henderson. Tom is captain on a B737-800 and also flies some more maneuverable aircraft in the military. Here’s a shot of his gorgeous RV-8, N469SH, before we launched for a two-ship. He gave me an aerial tour of Lake Martin near Alexander City, Alabama. Home to Russell Athletics – hence the name of the airport, Russell Field. Gorgeous part of the country over there – the lake is the US’s biggest in terms of coastline, or so they tell me. Many new housing developments are going up there. Wouldn’t mind living there but I don’t think I could convince my wife to move away from the ATL.
Thanks, Tom, for the good time and good eats. One thing’s for sure Alex City… things move at their own pace there.
