National Naval Aviation Museum (Part Two)

 such sleek beauties found at the

 the inside of one of the first commercial passenger planes
not much room in there then either

 wings fold up on some planes so more planes
 can fit on the deck of an aircraft carrier

the type of Japanese plane which bombed Pearl Harbor
it's part of history to learn from not take offense to

Gary wants to go back again today
he'll go by himself so he can spend as much time as he wants
there's more so stay tuned


  1. Flying is so improbable isn't it? How do those heavy contraptions stay in the air...
    I hope you and Gary both have a lovely day.

    1. Hi Sue, thanks, you'd be surprised at the skins of these planes, I was thinking they were awfully thin and kind of scary looking some of them looked like fabric. yikes.

  2. I don't know half as much about planes as I wish I did. I remember seeing a good exhibit in the Smithsonian once upon ages ago! You did well capturing one plane at a time in your photos!

    1. Hi Barbara, thanks, the places is amazing even for someone who doesn't like planes all that much but I admire their beauty and capabilities. Gary went back and had a great time, he went in a flight simulator and they said he did well avoiding all the planes trying to shoot him down and he landed on an aircraft carrier without crashing. He said he wanted to go faster, he was going 570 mph and they said it only went 640 mph. ha. The pilot who was standing by couldn't believe that Gary was 70 years old; saying that most folks that old don't have the reflexes to fly planes that well.


I love suggestions, questions, critiques, thanks for your comment
