My first flight by Jack

@ Buchanan Field Airport, Concord

One day my Dad told me we were going for a surprise. Dad and I got in the car and drove for 20 minutes. When we finally got there the banner on the front of the building said “kids fly free.”

Then I saw the plane yard filled with marine pilots and planes. Then when we got to the desk the lady said when your number is called you will fly, your number is 13.

So then me and Dad went to the info building and I got put in the system. Then I got a shot of the plane simulator. Then me and Dad went outside and waited.

I took some pictures of the planes and people then the man called the number 13. Me and Dad rushed inside with two other kids and the other kids brother got to sit in the front.

Then the he man told us to put on a headset with microphones built in. Then for the next five minutes all I heard was “control tower to Lucario 520 wait till take off.”

Then finally we took off. It felt like a ride at Disneyland. We did an elevator then flew over the ocean then some bridges like Richmond and San Rafael Bridge.
