Brad Departs Grizzly Lake Strip
After riding back to Slana with me in the van, Brad flies his plane - loaded with items needed down there, to McCarthy. He and Connie will be spending the summer there, holding church services. After checking the plane over thoroughly, he taxis to the end of the rough dirt strip, warms up the engine and checks the magnetos before taking off. Then the plane bounces over the bumpy ground and rapidly becomes airborne. He comes around over the strip and does a wing wag to say "Good-bye" as he head southwest.
