Default the "Stork"

the Fiesler Storch was a German observation and reconnaissance plane during WWII. Paul Allen (yes, THE Paul Allen) has a museum full of restored military aircraft from the 1930's and 1940's, most of them in flying condition. got some pics of this odd-looking little plane this afternoon... the thing can take off in about 150 feet if it has to, and land in just over half that... really amazing.

Nice ones here Rocky...nice and sharp, closely cropped and nice prop blur! Looked like a perfect day for plane spotting!
