Flight, Day 2

Sunday posed the same situation as did Saturday for shooting platforms. This time we were ready for the flight even with our soar backs. That days adventure consisted of two rare planes, a TP-40 and a Travel Air. The TP-40 is the trainer version of the P40 so it has an extra seat in the back. The Travel Air was a biplane developed in the late 1920’s as an inexpensive plane using World War 1 parts. Only 1800 Travel Air aircraft were built, not many of these biplanes are left flying today. Both of these planes proved to be just amazing subjects.

Of course it never hurts to have the owner smiling as he flies by.
