    WOW!!!!!!!

    Flying in a small airplane is like taking an old Volkswagon Beetle, turning the seats around and putting wings on it.

    Now, go FAST and do Tricks.

    NO!!

    lol, I am afraid of heights..I live two blocks away from an airport and my dad would park us under the approach to the runway. I think I took after his interest in flight.

    Also,
    Flying is like Black Magic to me. I understand the nuts and bolts of it, but I can't see the science behind it!!!

    THAT DID IT.....

    YOU got to see the races?? That looked like a total blast..
    Have you ever seen Sean Tucker or Patty Wagstaff?


    I have seen the Blues ....I love Fat Albert.

    One of the show sections is a Fat Al takeoff....

    It is one of the most amazing things I have ever seen.

    When they light the JATO (Jet Assisted Take Off) tubes, which are just huge
    sky rockets, this plane JUMPS into the sky...
    When it lifts off the ground, the nose goes about 45 degrees up, immediately!!!!, when the tubes flame out the plane drops like its gonna fall outta the sky but keeps going...

    Yup it was definitely fun ... and Fat Albert the earth rumbled as it flew (lumbered?) overhead.

    Don't know who Sean or Patty are ... sorry!

    I just like things that go fast .... cars, boats, planes, motorcycles, men ...

    About halfway thru the programyou have to remind your self that you need to breathe to see the end of the show.

    This gal has two big brass ones.....I don't know that for a fact but the way she flies, it shows.

    Fat Albert does lumber!

    I use to hate flying. Then Rob started flying lessons. I learned more about planes & then Rob & Steve (instructor) took me up. I had a blast Then when I had to go on another jet to go to PEI I was just fine. For once I was relaxed & was able to do other stuff besides holding onto the seat hoping it would be over soon.

    So you should try going up sometime. Its usually around 50.00 for an intro & that lasts about an hour.

    I flew with an LAPD helicopter pilot, in a Cessna, who also flew acrobatics.
