Not a good year for airshows. A show I went to in July had two wrecks. Someone flying into the show wrecked his twin engine Beechcraft and a DR1 replica had an engine failure and ditched into the cornfield.

Mish-mash of aviation photos

This is just a bunch of aviation-related pics I have taken over the years.





















So easy a monkey can do it.

For him to be flying that type of aircraft, that was a pretty noob mistake to make, especially full of passengers...
Could have been a lot worse.
Glad everyone made it out safely in the end.
