First leg of flight

Fresno Yosemite International Airport recently added a display to look like the giant redwoods of Sequoia National Park.

Arriving at the Fresno Yosemite International Airport was an easy in, and easy through the check-in process.  And even going the X-ray and body screening process was easier this time.  I removed my suspenders because of the metal parts, and made it through the x-ray machine just fine without setting off the alarms or losing my pants!  Then it was just a matter of waiting for the plane another hour and twenty minutes.  When we got to the gate there were only five others waiting, but by the time our flight started boarding there were 56.  The rather small Conair 700 only seats 66 passengers so we had a few empty seats in the economy plus area.  The seats, although still fairly narrow, were comfortable enough for the slightly under one hour flight to Los Angeles.  Smooth flight, even over the low mountain tops that separate the San Joaquin valley from the Los Angeles basin.  I'm carrying my GPS unit with me and checked it at a few places during the flight and noted that we were flying at about 550 mph at 24,000 feet elevation. Arrival at LAX was smooth and quick and we deplaned (is that a word?) at about 6:45 a.m.  Now we could find our way to the proper gate and wait for our next flight.
