Pics sent by my Phoebus's previous owner
Mar 2003 - Here are the pics that Tom (N697Z's previous owner) sent to me before I bought my Phoebus.  He has a heck of a good digital camera!  Nice pics Tom.

Picking up my Phoebus
On Friday April 11th we pulled in to the airport after a 26 hour drive with my dad and Aaron Thomson, another Phoebus owner and friend .  These are pics of pulling out the glider for the first time.

First Flight in My Phoebus
May 21, 2003 8:45 pm - pics after landing on my first flight in my Phoebus.  It had gotten pretty dark by the time I landed so the pics are not the best.  It was a great first flight!

First flight over Lone Peak & Mt. Timpanogos
June 28, 2003 - This was the first flight out of Cedar Valley in my Phoebus.  I have wanted to cross east over to the Wasatch range for over 10 years!  I got my wish and more.
