A little recreation during training

Yesterday after training, I and another of my teammates, Captain Bryan Taylor, who is a private pilot, rented a Cessna 172 from the Manhattan airport and went on a little flying tour of the Manhattan, Kansas area. We flew around for about an hour and then did a few touch and goes before turning the aircraft back in. A lot of fun, but I had forgotten how much those little birds bounce around in the wind! Our final landing was a full right crosswind at about 15 knots. Interesting to say the least, especially if you are not a pilot. Here is a video clip of one of our landings.
