planes

(no subject)

I saw the replica Wright Flyer A fly. It only went in a straight line 4m high, and it was at a great distance, but I did see it fly.

The other planes were on the tarmac, and there were Movements, so crowds were kept at a distance and I couldn't get close to the aircraft.

There will be photos.

Narromine Airshow


This tiny photo is the replica Wright Flyer Model A at an altitued of 4m over the heads of dignitaries. A cross wind meant the plane couldn't use the main runway so they used the second runway, which is 300meters from where I was standing. If I had my camera I'd have better photos; all I had was the little Olympus digital from work.

On the other hand, I can post my photos now.
