And away we go

Air museum YVR

A funny one

One day the pilot of a Cherokee 180 was told by the tower to hold short of the active runway while a DC-8 landed. The DC-8 landed, rolled out, turned around, and taxied back past the Cherokee. Some quick-witted comedian in the DC-8 crew got on the radio and said, "What a cute little plane. Did you make it all by yourself?" The Cherokee pilot, not about to let the insult go by, came back with a real zinger: "I made it out of DC-8 parts. Another landing like yours and I'll have enough for another one."

Yes, but - judging by the shadow - flying a tad too close to the ground. Ian F

Beautiful shot, fine POV and DOF, rich colours, sharp focus. I love the anecdote, too.
