Pilots Shoop, Skulte, and Christophe formed a 3-leg mission to get four dogs out of Athens, GA. The cargo consisted of Dudley, Gaspara, Pascal, and Sammy.

Christophe flew them from Greenville to to Petersburg, VA. Gaspara, the black pup, assisted Christophe with the flight operations by chewing up his charts. Hopefully, air traffic control didn’t give him too hard of a time. Or, perhaps, there was lots of laughing in the control room if Christophe had to fess up to the little imp’s actions.

Steve Shoop then took the brood to New Garden, PA, where Andris and Kristen Skulte picked them up.

    It was great meeting you folk. I am glad you liked using the New Garden Flying Field. Plus the low price of gasoline at New Garden makes it a good place to top the tanks.

    LMBO!!! Does air traffic control accept the excuse of “the dog ate my charts” any better than teachers accept “the dog ate my homework”??? Great job everyone!!
