Just a couple minute clip of my isntructor and myself over Wrentham Village Outlets and I495 in the Southwest practice area in a C172R N721SA.

That is such a weird feeling.

I have gone backwards in a 152 before. The handheld GPS said 5kts, and was pointing in the opposite direction and everything. =]

Had we gone up about 1000 feet higher that day, the winds aloft were showing 40+ knots at 3000 feet. So we would have been really darn close to going backwards.
