Playing Around with the 120

The weekend before last Jim and I headed to Midwest National Air Center to play around with "our" airplane, a 1947 Cessna 120. (we own a 1/3 of the plane.) It was a rare nice flying day in late February. I got some vanity ramp shots of the plane and then after we flew, I got some great shots of a rare bright blue sky behind the plane as we were refueling it. Not a half hour later, the sky went totally overcast so my timing was great!

I enjoy photographing airplanes so much I'm planning to devote a lot of time this year taking shots at the various fly-ins we attend of some unique and gorgeous planes. I hope to share them with their owners as well!
