Flying over the New River Gorge in a 1940 Stearman Biplane. This was taken with a GoPro Black 3+ that was mounted to the strut

A week ago, Ethan (Gator504), a talented photographer with a great wit, put up this terrific image of a tornado. I asked if I could use his image to play around with, and he graciously sent it to me. I don't know if I did it justice, but it was fun trying.

 

Thanks, Ethan.

Taken at Breighton Airfield, the moody clouds in the background set up a great backdrop for the photo.

Why Droopy Loopy...No...Not because, well, it looks pretty loopy

 

Because:

 

Droopy - the obvious flexibility of the wings. An issue for inexperienced pilots when taking off on anything but a clear smooth runway.

 

Loopy - It's not fast - those flexible serrated wings prevent it from reaching any sort of high speed compared to their opponents, despite fitting it with a powerful motor and the new fangled tri-blade propeller. But, with that torquey drive train and those wings; it can literally do controlled flops and flips that an enemy just can't follow. Once behind an opponent, the heavy machine gun (13mm} mounted centrally in the nose soon wipes any smirk ( from seeing this outrageous looking fighter at first ) off their face very quickly.

Had some spare wood laying around and I hate to throw wood away so I made this. With all the wind last night it was really flying but going no place.

A Morning Photography Adventure

 

Today I left my house at 8:30 and drove 5 minutes to a small air strip on the other side of town which was holding an annual event called the Biplane Expo. During this event, hundreds of biplanes (which date from the early 20th century) fly in from around the United States. This is the largest event of its kind in the US, despite the small size of my town and airport. The skies above were filled and the fields surrounding the airport were lined with these meticulously maintained aircraft.

 

After exhausting every conceivable photo opportunity -- each plane by itself, rows of planes lined up side-by-side, planes taking off, flying overhead, and landing -- at 10:00 I drove across town for my favorite Saturday breakfast at a local restaurant. On the way home, I noticed out of the corner of my eye an abandoned lot covered with what most people would consider weeds. There I find even more photo opportunities than at the Biplane Expo. I spend a full hour and a half in the fields, finding butterflies and gorgeous flowers. I returned home at 11:45, thrilled with the success of my morning photography adventure.
