Flying high

About a week and a half ago, my editor asked me if I get motion sickness. I don’t remember everything from that conversation, although the facts that a) I commandeered a teacup in that infamous Disney World ride, b) made my boyfriend feel sick afterward and c) didn’t feel sick myself afterward seemed to qualify me as A-OK to fly in a single-engine Cessna for an assignment.

Suffice it to say that, while I didn’t throw up, I did feel queasy for the next 10 hours after landing. But I didn’t let my in-flight stomach somersaults get in the way of my photography. Check out a few aerials of various York County locations that I made from about 2,000 feet above sea level:

    Great pics, Chris. The York College photo temporarily stumped me.

    Why not pics south of York next time?

      Thanks for your feedback, Dianne!

      I was flying in that single-engine Cessna was for an assignment about Capital City Airport (this story will be published at the end of February or in the beginning of March), so our flight time wasn’t going to be very lengthy anyway. Getting to take aerial photos was a fun — and motion sickness-inducing — byproduct of this assignment. I hope one day to have the opportunity to take a longer flight over more of York County, and as one who lives south of York, I would definitely be interested in that region as well!
