More things that fly:
Edit: Forgot the credits. The motorcycle picture was shot by a friend of mine named Hide (HEE-day) at Rockingham Speedway back in 1987. That's me on the bike.
2nd picture is my older daughter when she was 16, at a dance competition. She is a professional dancer now, at Alabama Theater in Myrtle Beach. I took the photo with a Sony Cybershot.
3rd picture is a P-51 Mustang next to a PT-17 at Creve Coeur Airport in St. Louis. Same guy owned both planes. The Stearman is painted in what was known as a "Recall" pattern. Back in the day, the planes did not have radios, when it was time for the students and instructors to return to the field, this plane would come around to herd everyone home. Also made with a Sony Cybershot.
4th picture is from the front seat of a Super Cub, on final approach to Lower Creek Airport in Lenoir, NC. Sony Cybershot, again.
5th and 6th pictures are of my WACO YMF-3, a 1/5 scale radio controlled plane. It had a 23cc gas engine, and I built it from plans. I'm wearing the glove in the second picture, hand starting the engine by spinning the propeller. I quit this hobby a number of years ago. Sony Cybershot
those are awesome, thanks!
1942 Waco flying out Dare County-Roanoke Island International Airport as a tour service on the Outer Banks. I took this photo with Nikon D200 with a Nikon 18-200mm lense. Hmmm...there seems to be a good deal of compression artifact upon uploading.
T34MentorII's out of Little Creek or Oceana (Virginia Beach, Va) doing some "touch & go" training flights at the First Flight Landing Strip adjacent to the Wright Brothers National Memorial in Kill Devil Hills, NC. I took all of these photos right outside of my office window, where I worked before retiring a few years ago.
Then one afternoon these Cobra's came through. Probably from Cherry Point or New River, perhaps?
Anyway, I hope that y'all enjoyed seeing these photos of "things that fly!"
This is a photo I was able to shoot by watching those contrails every evening, waiting for the moon's track to coincide with the route of the airline that flies over every evening. The sky was not as dark as it appears in the photo. I shot that with a Nikon D300S with a 80_400mm lense.
