Maybe you've seen a little V-wing plane, looking something like a hang glider or ultralight, flying around the South Bay in recent months, taking scenic excursions.

Turns out, you can hop in for an intimate, low-altitude flight – any time.

Pacific Blue Air LA flies the state-of-the art Revo Evolution aircraft, an open-air two-seater Light Sport Aircraft that owner Courtney Brin likes to refer to as a "motorcycle or big jet ski in the sky."

The flights aren't just tours: Passengers are taught how to fly the craft, and are encouraged to take the controls. Each flight is a lesson, typically with Pacific Blue Air LA's chief flight instructor, Henry Boger. Pacific Blue is based conveniently at the Hawthorne Airport.

906 9th

One Manhattan Beach Hill Section spec home completely missed the last real estate cycle.

Now, they've finally sold it, 5 years after the first time it was listed for sale.

906 9th kitch906 9th St. (6br/7ba, 5425 sq. ft.) is large and grand, in its way. (Click the address for more photos & info.)

In the MB hills, and in the South Bay generally, a big, opulent Mediterranean like this was very much the "in" style in the last big building cycle.

This particular home had rough timing. The lot was acquired a bit too close to the end of the last runup, in March 2006. (Purchase price: $1.825M.)

It would be 4 more years before the completed home hit the MLS. By April 2010, the whole world had changed.

In 2006, you couldn't see the end of the roaring…

Hills-Backyards-SM.jpgThe Palos Verdes Peninsula is known for its spectacular panoramic and blufftop ocean views. But it's also home to many hidden places, woodsy paradises of privacy and scenery. The Linden H. Chandler Preserve is one such gem.

Located in a somewhat isolated area behind and below Dapplegray Elementary School in Rolling Hills Estates, the preserve, once a farm, offers an easy to moderate 0.9-mile loop trail that can be broken up into shorter walks/hikes. When you reach the top of the upward slope that greets you shortly after embarking on the trail, you can see for miles on a clear day.

From atop the same hill, which has a few pathways traversing it, you'll also catch glimpses of the Rolling Hills Country Club golf course and Empty Saddle Club.

Here's your exclusive chance to see and purchase a remodeled Hermosa Beach condo that is not on the MLS.

This 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit is on the ground level of a building in a great location on Hermosa Avenue in the northern end of town. It's a short walk to Martha's for brunch, and an even shorter walk – across the street! – to the beach.

The whole 914 square foot condo was remodeled completely just a few years ago, with a sleek, modern style to the kitchen, baths and living areas.

The exterior of the building is about to undergo a major makeover, and will look fantastic when complete.

Can you really live on Hermosa Ave. in the north end of town for $1,050,000? You can.

This property is not on the MLS. With the pace of the Hermosa Beach…
