Re: Re: 48 hour comp: No Sky

It's the stipulation that the aircraft must be airborne [cough, Mr Abbott, above, cough] which makes this one much trickier than it first appears: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50821119416_7408f181a1_h.jpg by Gordon Duncan , on Flickr https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50821216212_0d0be62a6f_...

Re: 48 Hour Photo Comp - the grass is greener...

Quite possibly the single greatest aircraft design of all time... it's nuts that these things are still flying in such numbers, and indeed still heavily used as working aircraft.
