Great shot!
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.

Nice shot Herman. I definately wouldn't want to fly in something so small Tongue

It looks a bit heath robinson to me, Herman, don't think I could pluck up the courage to take to the air in it Grin. Great for Saturday shadows, though Smile Carol

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
Es una foto que dan ganas de volar en el...Yo soy un buen aficionado a la aviacion y me gusta volar..

Plane looks purely functional, but a credit to its maker. I wish I has that talent.
Super well detailed image

Lovely shot Herman, of this home made contraption. Did it actually ever fly, or is just an ornament? Don
