Skyhawk N65003 on final at Olean

N65003 on final
I drove up to Olean Airport just before dinner tonight. I hadn’t been up to the airport in a couple of weeks. I love to drive up eve when I’m not flying. Airports are always fascinating places to visit. There was some activity today. There was a corporate jet on the ramp, a Piper 180 getting pre-flighted and my regular ride, Cessna Skyhawk N65003 in the pattern. I followed the pilot, who is the branch manager of our Cattaraugus County Bank in Franklinville as he executed his approach to land and then I took a series of photos as he did land. Pictured here is the aircraft just about ten feet above the runway beginning the landing flare just prior to actual touchdown.
