Luckily, aviation paradise is still pretty damn cool, even without smooshy romance. See... a few pictures to prove it.
#201- July 19- Soaring over the Great Salt Lake
|A couple hours into our trek to EAA Oshkosh.|
|After a quick sleep outside of Denver, we flew with friends to Rock Falls, IL.|
|Mr. T and company, practicing the 4-0 formation for Oshkosh. Tim is in the "4," second from the right in the 5-airplane line abreast formation.|
|Before leaving Rock Falls, Team RV practiced their routine. I am their newest fan girl. SO COOL.|
|One of the coolest features of Oshkosh is the daily airshow. Warbirds, formations, insane aerobatics...|
|If T had his druthers, he'd be flying a P-51 like this one. Someday when I make the millions, I'll buy him one.|
|One of my favorite airplanes. As part of my Aircraft Identification Training, I learned that the Flying Fortress has R-1820 engines, same as the DC-3 and T-28. (For the record, I recalled that WITHOUT T's help. Yay me.)|
|The P-40, one of my favorite fighters. I admit, the styling captivates me.|
|Watching the B-29 fly every day was incredible. Of course, I dedicate this photo to Geeta and Kristin.|
|Homeward bound! We crossed through restricted airspace nearby China Lake and Edwards AFB.|
|Impatiently waiting for this fruit to grow.|
|I'm contemplating a small batch of pickled jalapenos. Anyone have a good recipe?|
|While being held captive by manicurists on a sister date, I noticed this incredibly creepytown nail display. Ick.|
|Mr. T and I are making friends with kale. This saute with mushrooms and garlic is quite tasty and stupendously healthy. Per the reviews, I added tomatoes. Next time, I will sprinkle red pepper flakes and maybe a touch of red wine vinegar.|
