Jesting with jets

I was quite pleased with the photograph I had taken of an L37 Albatross at last years airshow, so understandably sent a copy to my son, who is a pilot, while we were chatting online one evening.

His scornful reply, "The albatross does not fly, it converts fuel into noise energy and the earth repels it".



As a jet, it may not be in the same class as the Mirage or the Cheetah (click to see previous posts), but I still like the photo.

:) I was out walking my dog last night and the jets were still circling the air doing night training. The smell of spent fuel was much more evident than during the day as it competes with traffic fumes. Much as I love my planes, it can't be healthy for you.

It's a great capture... I do like your sons reply though it made me chuckle..

Wow, you must be close to the airfield WalksFarWoman, if you can smell the fuel. My son loves the smell of jet fuel - but then he is a pilot. As for the health aspect, I'm not sure. Must be nice to be able to see them regularly, but I imagine the noise could also get to you

That's my son Tom, he has a great sense of humour and is absolutely passionate about flying - goes into a decline if he is grounded for too long.

Don't be pleased, just be proud. This is excellent photo, so clear. I love air planes. Thanks for sharing. Anna :)

Hi Anna thanks for the encouragement. I have plenty where this one comes from so will be doing more as I go along
