A story from a former student tells about a daring student in his class who considered himself a ladies man. He certainly must have wanted to impress one of his girl friends.  He had a late day solo once and arranged for her to drive west to Foley, AL.  He told her to park near some trees at the outlying practice field, but where she couldn’t be seen.  His plan was for him to shoot touch and go landings until no planes remained in the traffic pattern. Then he would land and taxi close to where she was parked.  He would identify himself by waving a large white handkerchief out of the canopy. She would rush over to the plane and climb in. Both looked forward to sharing a pleasant flight in a T-34. 

It worked for a while.
