Not long after, MyMrMallory, pilot-in-command, Austin, in the right seat, and I, in the back seat, piled in during a pleasant morning. The route MyMrMallory planned was exciting: Take off from Kickapoo and land at Danaher Airport, and, if Mac McGregor was there, we would visit with him for a while. Then, take off from Danaher and then land at Wichita Valley; then fly over to Sheppard and land at Wichita Falls Regional; from there, return to Kickapoo. Few cities can claim four airports within a ten mile radius! Wichita Falls is rich in aviation history and it delightfully shows.
Off the port-side wing, Danaher Airport (7TX0) recently received new pavement, numbers, and stripes. (Better pictures forthcoming.)

View of North Texas as we accomplish Austin's joy flight, one I would enjoy repeating any time soon.
