Air Zoo pics

Recommended Posts

On Feb 16, I finally got my crap together and took a three-hour trip to the Air Zoo. Here are some of my favorite shots I thought I'd share. If the shots are crap, you can attribute it to either my unsteady grasp, or my hardware, a 2 mpx camera phone. You also have the dubious merit of a caption on every picture.

 

First, here's the F-14A Tomcat of VF-84 "Jolly Rogers", serial No. 160395 (to the best of my knowledge, the picture I took of the serial is all fuzzy):

The immortal P-40:

The best fighter ever built, the SPAD XIII:

The Wright Flyer:

This one's for you, Major Lee:

F/A-18 Hornet:

During the month of February, one can sit in the pit of a designated plane. Here's me in the F-14; it was hands down the best 90 seconds of my life:

If you wish, you can view the whole album HERE.

Only 90 seconds? I spent 10 minutes in the pilots seat of an F-4D at Write-Pat
