First PnP Mission is a Doozy
When David Tan decides to get involved, he sure goes all out…
My first PnP mission went off great! I’m amazed how we managed to get 5 legs to work together flawlessly.
I flew from Middleton, WI (C29) down to Lee’s Summit, MO (LXT) to pick up the above poodle and a Chihuahua to take to Milwaukee, WI (MKE). We were supposed to have two more chihuahuas, but the breeder got spooked when we asked for crate dimensions and only brought one. I could have flown all 3.
At MKE, the dogs were met by Mary Hall who will be fostering the chi and keeping the poodle.
In the meantime, Sean Berry picked up a bat in Anoka, MN to fly to Milwaukee. The bat had suffered a serious wing injury and is non-releasable. Sean handed over the bat, and I flew the bat to Columbus, OH (CMH) to stay the rest of his life with Ohio Nature Education where humans will tend to his every need.
Brian Renn flew two orphaned cats (owner died in an accident) from Cincinnati, OH (LUK) to Columbus. The bat got off and the cats get on my plane. I flew them to Waukesha, WI (UES) to their new adopter. Then, it was finally home to C29.
Long day, 10 hours flying for me, 2 dogs, 1 bat and 2 cats got to their destinations! Sean and Brian made legs two and three work. Very satisfying work!
I’m looking forward to doing more missions,
