October 24th Recent Photos Page

I missed another Saturday on the Battleship, and on the following Sunday I went to a local Flying Circus with a group from my office.  This was a very cool event, and I thought I'd share some photos from the day.  Below are a dozen or so photos of the biplanes and a video with sound of one of them landing.  The Flying Circus performs on Sundays and offers biplane rides before and after the show.  I was tempted to take a ride, but didn't go for it.  It's something I want to do though, and I'll be returning there next year to take a ride.  Enjoy the photos below, and if you'd like more information about the Flying Circus, in Bealeton, VA, visit their website at www.flyingcircusairshow.com.  My next volunteer day on the Battleship will be October 30th.

I think this was the prettiest plane there, clearly the "Cadillac" of biplanes!
