Inspired by . . . yellow

A few weeks ago I was out chasing birds of a different feather across the sky!

The Bluebonnet Airshow was a lot of fun, and I thought my shots of this yellow bi-wing would be a perfect match for Kim's theme this week!

This one is fun – the pilot was sitting in the rear cockpit so it looks like not one is flying the plane!

 

Most of my shots came out like this . . . .

But I did get a few good shots – and found some fun aviation quotes to share with you, too!

 

In flying I have learned that carelessness and overconfidence are

usually far more dangerous than deliberately accepted risks.

- Wilbur Wright in a letter to his father, September 1900

Always try to keep the number of landings you make

equal the number of take-offs you've made.

 

Keep lookin' up!

  6. Cool pictures! As someone who has flown small planes, those quotes are spot on and packed with wisdom. I'd never have the guts to fly a tail dragger like that!

  8. Thanks a lot, June, for your kind comment on my latest B&W post.
    Great shots of the historic US NAVY biplane. Did you already had the change to be a copilot in such an aircraft and doing some loopings? Or do you prefer standing on the ground taking your pictures from the "Red Baron" / combat pilot and his flying treasure?
