Looks like a toy.

It IS a toy !

A very big, very expensive 900 HP 225 mph. toy.
Being flown to the limits by a very big boy !

Nice catch!:-)

Even being an earthbound totally afraid of flying person I love this photograph with the red/black of the aeroplane standing out strongly set against the blue sky. The smoke and the blur of the propellers creates a sense of both energy and forward motion.

Good catch again, you do these well

I love looking at this photograph, the colors are great and the stream behind the plane is magical.

Seems a toy, but it can carry 6 people plus 2 pilots on board!
That's why 900 HP.
Great photo indeed!

The crispness of the plane, the blur of the propellers, and the bright primary colors along with the wispy smoke make an eye catching photo.

Ruth said it all for me. Very nice all around!

Like this image a lot, nice sharp plane, clear blue sky and lots of smoke. Looks like a great day out. Do I get the impression you’re a plane buff?

Thank you, everyone !

"Do I get the impression you’re a plane buff?"

I've been accused of worse !

Let's see if I can answer that ...

Does the fact that I was married, in flight, over Tampa Bay in the AT11 version of a Beech 18 like this one count ?
