This home made plane at the fly inn fascinated me - and it sports a good shadow for Saturday ! The guy who built it lives in another town and he reckons he has put nearly 200 flying hours into it already - I would not easily fly with him though Smile
Thanx for the overwhelming response to my Wet Hibiscus yesterday ! I was hesitant to place it - thought there was to much rain on it Smile Special thanx to Annette [ annettep38 ] for her lovely mod and to Lavina [ fificat100] for her prized UA - much appreciated !!
Have a sunny Saturday !!

Great plane shot. Looks like it might be slow, and also fun, if noisy to fly in. I have friends who live in Algoma, Wisconsin, near Oshkosh, where there is a museum and airfield for experimental aircraft, and there is a mammoth flyin every summer. The sit in their yard and watch the planes fly by.


Have a good weekend, Herman.

Not too sure I'd want to fly in it either, Herman: but it has provided you with a good shot, crisply detailed and sitting on top of it's own Saturday shadow.

Lovely shot and shadows, Herman, but as to flying in it, hm! m'thinks that rather blunt nose would not make it very aerodynamic, so I would rather stand and watch than take it for a skyward tour ... Carol Grin
