I flew a plane yesterday. A Cessna C172. I taxied it to the runway, took off, flew a large figure 8 in the airspace over Nashua New Hampshire, headed back to the airport. All I didn't do was land. We were up for a half-hour.

I guess I did pretty well for a first flight. It was a nearly perfect day. A bit of turbulence, and that freaked me out a bit. The whole experience was pretty nerve wracking.

I got a little light headed towards the end. I don't know if it was the motion, or the nerves... but just before landing I got a bit queasy. Didn't hurl though. (But once we landed I wasn't so lucky...)
