Last night at sunset, I went flying just for the hell of it. I rarely do this and usually fly for purpose. While I was doing some practice for an upcoming flight I'm doing for Ingress this weekend, most of the flight was just me "goofing around". I got this lovely sunset picture though!
I'm off to an air show today. I'll be looking up with envy at those pilots zooming around!
Spitfires, Hurricanes, biplanes... maybe a modern military helicopter :-p but they did advertise "parking" for folks who could land on their grass strip.
Planes indeed went zoom and whoosh, the wing walkers didn't fall off, and Spitfires are very impressive planes! Also holy crap the aerobatics - I mean loops and barrel rolls I expected, but, like, flat spins? Tumbling stalls? Flying sideways? The little I know about flying just makes those moves even more terrifying.
Pictures will follow, if any turned out (planes are hard! they keep, like, moving around!), after I get home.
I'm still struggling with the autofocus on my camera, I took an appalling number that didn't turn out. I mean, I got some good ones here, but flying birds aren't going to be so cooperative and I'd love to get some pictures of them. <sigh /> I know this isn't the right camera for that.
