It’s A Bird. It’s A Plane…It Really Is A Plane!

Here are a few more pics from the airshow we attended last month.

No, I would never have been brave enough to fly in that thing!

Some type of contraption that cranked the engine

I didn’t get many good air shots as I’m not quick enough.

Now, onto some cars….

  1. I roamed lovingly through this collection. Thanks!
    I remember it used to be quite a risky business cranking those propellers to start the engine. One had to bring the hand out of the way VERY smartly!

    • I really wish I could have shared more but figured not everyone would want to see them. I took about 150 photos. One thing I really loved looking at and photographing was the insignias on each plane.I couldn’t help but wonder the story behind each one. We did hear the story behind one of them, possibly Fokker, can’t remember who for sure.

  2. Wow, Suzi, these are like the coolest, coolest, coolest photos!!!

    It’s like stepping back in time!

    HA! Me neither!

    Love the shots of the cars too. Especially that BIG black one. WOW!

    Thanks for sharing, my friend. Muchly enjoyed!
