Flying adventure at Mt Diablo

A small group of pilots went to Diablo this past Sunday, there was only five of us, and we had a blast. It was not an easy day, though. I struggled at first to get over the launch but finally made it.


I followed Zac to the thermal and up I went. I flew over towers, big gaps, and circled like I never circled before. Everyone ended up at Brentwood, I did not. I was at about 4000 MSL over the towers, Zac was at eyesight. I wanted to follow him, but he’s fast, every time I blinked my eyes, he was further. I decided to stay local and just fly around. I landed in a ditch at The Plateau, on top of Mitchell Canyon, but survived! Attached is a very quick edit of the flight.

Overall, a great day!
