flying1.jpg (22030 bytes) One of the crew was a private pilot and many made trips to the outer Hawaiian Islands in this rented Piper Cherokee Six.  Hundreds of photos were taken on those trips.  Lets send some more copies of them in fellows! Here Chuck See flies the plane as co-pilot.
pre_flt.jpg (12712 bytes) On the far left is Jim Rassbach, doing a pre-flight to the plane before committing aviation.
insane.jpg (28162 bytes) A popular destination in the Cherokee was the Big Island and the volcanoes.  Here John Brylowski stands on the edge of the 2000 foot drop off into one of the craters.

oahu.jpg (18430 bytes) Those that survived the tour of the volcanoes saw some great views of Hawaii from the small plane.  Here is some of the typical scenery on the Leeward side of Oahu on the return trip.
