Picture of the Day: October 15

Today was gorgeous (despite a bit of a breeze and a few bumps), so I managed to get my student in the air for a quick flight before heading to work. We made sure to leave enough time to check out the airport's open house, though - the Collings Foundation was there with their B-17, B-24, and P-51!

We lucked out and got back from our lesson just as the B-17 was firing up...

...and taking off. As it powered up and rolled past, I could feel the vibration through the ground. So cool! :)

This is the P-51 I flew last year. If I wasn't saving so much for some upcoming trips (and if I had a little more time) I would have flown it again! Oh well...maybe next year... :)
