Life may not be the party we hoped for---but while we're here--we might as well dance..........

My favorite ride in FS 2004 "a Century of Flight" ::cowboy:: This is the Tante Ju that flew me from Pamplona to Madrid in January 18 of 1950: my 7th. birthday & 1st. aircraft ride (because I was dying ::banghead:: ). But I survived  ::loony::

So, its not actually my personal ride, but I decided that I'll give the world of spinny-wings a shot. Needless to say, I had to try very hard to remind myself that its okay to hold the stick forward to go faster. :P

In case anyone is wondering, I did have fun, but I think I need to try another lesson or two before I decide whether or not I'm going to change routes. ;)

Not exactly camouflage either, although the same cannot be said for your shirt in combination with this ginormous flying machine ;)

Here's what I fly, wings firmly attached to the fuselage but still going round in circles a lot of the time . . .
