These are photos of those planes who made me take out a camara
and made me say I want a shot of this.
A rapsody of cylinders, a sonata of pistons, a roar of engines,
a waterfall of flight.
And these are not stuffed away in some museum, these planes fly!
Planes of another time, another place. Planes of times long gone but
not forgotten, they have tales to tell and it serves you to listen well.
Days gone bye and days gone gold, Days gone bye and planes of old.
These are the planes which speak to ones imagination.
Well...... to me at least....
