This afternoon a private plane took off from the river. It was pretty exciting to watch. We had someone who flies his own plane down at the office once and he said it would be a tricky take off because you have to negotiate the bridges. He said the way he’d do it would be to start the takeoff from under the Marquam heading down river and then you’d have lots of room to clear the Hawthorne. Well, today the pilot started at the Hawthorne, started the take off upriver, was airborne just under the Marquam and when he cleared the Marquam, cranked it pretty steep to clear the Ross Island. I’ll bet everyone’s peanuts fell into their laps.
