flew over my house, never saw one before, just ran,grabbed the camera and shot. (just like a P&S :D ) A week later I found out it was at a local airport for tours, and rides-for a fee. Completley restored.

Mike, That had to be a thrill for you to see the "Nine o Nine" fly right over your house. :D

The Captain and crew finally got their stuff together, now if we can only remember where we left it. :cool:

Bruce, Your shot makes me wish I had known earlier that it was at the local airport.
It's a small airport about 5 miles form my house. It was a thrill to see it in the sky. Thanks for sharing the close up.

I got to fly on the Aluminum Overcast a few years back. What an experience! I took my boys out of school on day 2 of the school year. When my oldest told his teacher why he was going to be out of school for the day, the teacher told him he better bring pictures to prove it!

Pics taken with an old Pentax P&S.
