"I was originally scheduled for a ride in a WACO biplane but the first day was too windy so rescheduled. Second try - the plane was down with engine problems so they offered me a more expensive ride in the AT6 Texan at no additional cost. The trip was fantastic. We took off over Jones Beach, flew along the beach, headed north, flew over my house, west along the Sound, and then back south to the airport. The flight was smooth and the views were great."
