Airplanes

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.

    Seeing planes like that at air shows keeps one spellbound.

  2. Just came over from Instapundit. Trained in the T-28 in Corpus Christi in 1981. Always wanted to fly one after I knew what I was doing.
