11 - Interesting looking mountains in Arizona 2
18 - Courtesy car in Lordsburg
01 - Vince the pilot
02 - Tomek and Marta as passengers
Originally we planned to depart as early in the morning as possible. However, due to lack of time in the previous days on Saturday morning we still had a lot of packing and preparations to do. All in all we managed to depart from Santa Ana John Wayne airport around 12 o'clock. Our first (very quick) stop was in a nearby Corona to get a cheap gas. From Corona we flew in a beautiful weather and cloudless skies. After around 4.5 hours of flying we landed in Lordsburg, NM. We arrived there after 5 pm local time and although it was already outside of opening hours of FBO, there was still someone there, so we could fill-up the tanks and even got the courtesy car.

Vince was the pilot all day, I was doing navigation and Marta was taking pictures.
