Every year we go the fly in breakfast at the Dubuque Regional Airport. It’s a pretty good breakfast and usually there are some neat planes to photograph.
The Grand Kids love the excitement and this year Angie, Ben all four of the kids went. There were not as many planes to see as in past years but this old war bird was present as usual. I have photographed it many times and never get tired of seeing it take off. That big radial engine has an amazing sound. Click on the image to see a larger more detailed image.
So I photographed it’s take off and then he did a fly by with a smoke trail. Of course when he made that pass I was in the hanger walking back to the car so I missed that. 😦
This large corporate jet was not part of the fly in scene but I was impressed with the size of it. It took off while we were standing in line so I ducked out and went to the flight line to grab this shot.
Enjoy your day and be careful.
