Local Winter Flight Pittsburgh, February 2000

Outskirts of Pittsburgh in Winter. Rostraver airport in sight.

Pittsburgh offers quite a different scenery in winter. There is snow piled all over and the city looks dirty. However, the outside of the city looks beautiful covered with snow.

Ashley, Bob and I decided to fly for an hour or so. Ashley is interested in flying, she plans to pursue her private pilot license. Hopefully this opportunity will motivate her more.

The flight was uneventful, with a landing at Rostraver. We flew over Carnegie Mellon and over downtown at the end of the flight, returning to Allegheny County Airport.
