We picked up a flyer for aerial tours from Frisco, so decided stop off at the Billy Mitchell Airport just down the road from our vacation rental to inquire. Pilot Dwight Burrus was available the next morning for a tour, so we made plans to arrive early for our ride. You can learn more about air tours at: http://outerbanksairtours.com/
The next morning dawned bright and clear and we were excited to get up in the air! We had decided to do the lighthouse to lighthouse tour, from Cape Hatteras Lighthouse to Ocracoke Island. Dwight let me take the captain’s seat so I could photograph out the open window.
We headed just a bit north to see the newly painted Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. They had just finished painting it the day before we arrived. I’ve included several shots from different angles. Learn more about it at: http://www.nps.gov/caha/historyculture/cape-hatteras-light-station.htm
