Sunshine Letter | Thanks for the airplane ride

Dear Editor,

I got to ride in an airplane for the first time ever at the Truckee Airport.

I was so lucky that I got to sit in the front seat and the wonderful pilot, Ben Thompson, was teaching me how to fly.

We flew over lots of lakes and over to Lake Tahoe. I saw millions of trees and I saw the Truckee River. I wasn’t afraid because I knew my pilot was a good flier. Even though I was the only girl in the airplane it was still very fun. I think Ben Thompson is a really nice guy and a very excellent pilot. I wish I could thank him again for taking me up in his airplane. It made my day wonderful. I hope you remember me, Ben.
