Mike Torbett and his Panzl
Brenham was a beehive. I still find a crowded traffic pattern to be a challenge. As we were walking into the diner, everyone was oohing and aahing over the Panzl. On departure, I left first, with him next. I could hear everyone going (appreciatively) nuts on the radio as he did a high performance climb (after it was requested by the audience). After departing, Mike caught up and flew with me for a little, close to his stall speed.
Hamburger at the Brenham Airport Diner: $200. First formation flying: Priceless!
