Cocoa Beach from the air
A perspective of the main runway at Patrick Air Force Base not
commonly seen by civilians.
Not exactly a "Maverick" fly-by of the tower but close enough to feel cool.
Sol y Mar condo at 14th St. south center foreground with Snug Harbor beyond.
Cocoa Beach Pier with a few surfers enjoying the last remnants of the Hurricane Maria swell.
All shots were from an early morning flight today with Florida Biplanes out of the Merritt Island Airport. I highly recommend taking advantage of their very reasonably priced flights along the beach, Space Center and further west. Acrobatics are possible for the more adventurous passengers. Two passengers can fit in the open cockpit with the wind in their face. Double thumbs up adventure.
