Beautiful day for taking some photos along the way to Lake Murray Lodge and Airport. It makes you glad you stuck it out and got your pilots license. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2HX2U6QufoE This is my 1969 C172. I remove the screw in the window bracket that holds the window at a 45 degree angle, allowing it to swing all the up. Oddly enough, the wind keeps the window up all the way up for me while I'm shooting pics.
