A tiny ‘lil Airbus on final for 28R at SFO. Almost looks like you could pluck it out of the frame. Nice shot by Angelo DeSantis.
Achievement Unlocked: Fly an airplane solo!
Holy cow, what a day. Will have to do a full video soon to gather my thoughts, but I knew I had to come share the good news with everyone. Thanks for the support getting to here y’all!
"Sierra Hotel" is all I gotta say about this snap of Randy Ball and his Mig-17 in a low, fast pass. Photo by Luis Sales.
Had a good pre-Thanksgiving flight lesson today. Maybe a little too good! My instructor was intent on me soloing today, however this little bird decided he wanted one more good lesson with the instructor still in the plane. Which he got.
Some Osprey love for your Monday.

P-51, black and white. Nailed it. Simon Gratien has definitely gotten the art of photographing airplanes. Used with permission.
Haven’t featured a Tornado in a while. Lloyd Horgan nailed this shot of one turnin’ and burnin’ its way through the Mach Loop. Used with permission.
I quite enjoyed this shot from the cockpit of the venerable Cessna 172 (OY-NET) on final for Groningen Airport (GRQ). Photo by Armando Alonso.
