Birds of another feather…

…or lack thereof. The fixed-winged kind.

WWII planes on display in Ft. Myers:

Louis took those photos yesterday from the helicopter. I especially like the last two photos because they include the helicopter’s shadow.

Emily and I stopped by the airport today just as the planes were preparing to take-off for the next stop on the tour. We were not able to get close to the planes and had to stand behind a fence while they took off, but it was still exciting to watch those huge planes start up each engine one at a time, and we held our breath as they used every inch of the runway to become airborne. My photos are not nearly as interesting as Louis’.
