Janice Welsh of La Port, Ind., and Maureen Kenney of Bakersfield, Calif., aren’t novice aviators. They’re accomplished pilots who have flown all kinds of planes. But this was a new experience.
On Saturday they were passengers together in a bright red replica of a 1930s Waco biplane. It was the first time either of them had ever flown in an open-cockpit aircraft or one with a tail wheel.
“It was more like flying like a bird than anything I’ve ever done,” Welsh said.
