We arrived at Lakeland Linder Regional Airport before dawn, and loaded my E35 Bonanza (a 1954-vintage V-tail). The stars aligned well for returning the rental car across the field and catching a ride courtesy of the Landmark Aviation. Nicely done, guys, thanks. So we were able to depart roughly on schedule at about 7:20 am. When I asked Departure to activate my VFR flight plan, they said they had an IFR plan on file for me. That was the result of my inexperience filing with Fltplan.com, but it worked out fine for us, as an unexpected layer of cloud at 2,000 feet resulted in our shooting a for-real ILS into Savannah, despite forecasts for VMC all day, all the way.
