Doesn’t matter if the hood is up for maintenance or if it’s dancing the skies “on laughter-silvered wings,” there’s just something about a plane.
Spending the afternoon at Culpeper Airport with Joe “Reb” Edwards and his beautiful T-28 Trojan.
Love being around these machines.
Edited to add: A few years ago Joe Reb was at the Pax River Airshow flying his demo routine. I was there with the Warrior Flight Team and I caught this shot of him on one of his his high-speed passes. He’s gone faster, both as an F-14 pilot and as the NASA pilot for shuttle mission STS-89, but speed is relative and this was relatively fast. Click on the pic for all its aeronautically sweet goodness.
