As stated in the video, while driving out of Charlotte, NC, I received a random message on Twitter to join an unknown person in his plane.
This is how that went.
[Apologies for the bumpy ride — this was shot and edited on my iPhone.]
[…] And, hey — at least this time I was with a professional pilot (unlike the last). […]
Looks like you had fun & NC is green and pretty from the air. I’ve never flown in a small plane with a stranger but I’ve gotten on the backs of motorcycles with guys I barely knew. Scary fun!
