Speedy Birds

Liking both autos and airplanes, it’s fun to go to an event that offers both. The cars drive in while the planes fly in and you get to drool over both. I need to be a bit more outgoing and start talking to the pilots though. I’m not as familiar with the airplane models and features, so visiting with the pilots would help me learn more about the planes. At these shows however, it’s common not to find anyone close by, since they are off visiting others too.

Both of these little guys look like they would be fun to fly and I’m guessing have a lot of punch for their size. Many of the planes that attended the Aeros and Autos at Ellington Field are local, so maybe I’ll have an opportunity to visit with the pilots at a future event.

  1. The paint-job and the wheel coverings sure do give the impression that these are built for speed. Like you, I do not know one plane from another but they sure are fun to photograph.

  2. The white plane has a three prop propeller, which usually means a pretty stout engine, so I’m guessing they are stunt-type planes. Yes, I like the colors quite a bit.
