Colorful Classic Fly By

Aircraft, Airplanes, Formation, Flying, Colorful

One of the awesome aspects of the annual EAA AirVenture is the amazing variety of aircraft you can see – up close and flying by.

I love the variety of color and the precision formation of this fly by.

To be honest, I was tempted to clone more of these planes into photo to fill the frame…but decided to leave it as I photographed it.

Winging It

Bi-Plane, Wing Walker, Barnstormer, Gene Soucy, Teresa Stokes, EAA, Airshow, Aerobatics, Flying

Something you don’t see every day…unless you’re talking about the Experimental Aircraft Association’s AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

This is the high-flying duo of Gene Soucy (pilot) and Teresa Stokes (wing walker) that flew to the delight and amazement of airshow spectators on Saturday, August 3, 2013.

Though I live less than two hours drive from Oshkosh, I’d never been to an EAA AirVenture – an annual aviation convention/extravaganza. I decided this would be the year. Amazing doesn’t begin to describe the experience. I was blessed to be there on a perfect day, weather wise, and was able to snap a number of great photos. (Watch for future posts.)

Winged Warrior Memoirs

Blue Angels, Grumman Tiger, F11, Jet, Navy, Military

This photo speaks of a bygone era of air combat.  The blue jet in the center of this image is a Grumman Tiger F11. This one sports the markings of the US Navy’s Blue Angels. It was flown by the Blue Angels in their 1968 season.

Alongside the Tiger, you’ll see a MiG-15 (black) and MiG-21 (silver) – all on display at the Combat Air Museum in Topeka, Kansas.

I won’t take a lot of space here to detail the distinguished history of these aircraft. Instead, let me direct you to the Combat Air Museum’s website where they have a great deal of information on these and other classic warbirds they proudly display…
