Default The sky in my eye

I finally got to take my Christmas present from last year. My 3 sons and their families bought me a ride in a Waco bi-plane. So I finally took it today. Had a great flight and saw some neat things.

Clint - I'm really scared of heights so I would never do this, but the view is beautiful! I particularly like the 4th shot.

Great photos, Clint-

It looks just like "home" to me, after 32 year of professional flying.

You are right - it was making some fly overs in preparation for an air show at Dobbins AFB this weekend.

Great shots, Clint. Do these little planes have auto-pilot?

That would be nice! The closet I'll get is radio controlled - I used to do quite a bit of RC flying - I got real good at repairs!
