Skywatch Friday - The ups and downs of flying

Seeing that this is my week for aircraft my Skywatch theme today is a Boeing Stearman (ZU-BED) being taken through her paces at the Port Elizabeth airshow.

Here she comes for her first manoeuvre..........


Going up and coming down.....................if I was in there I am not so sure that my breakfast would still be were it should be.

  
And now it's time to leave.


Visit Skywatch for more pictures from around the world.

Wow, that must have been fun to watch! Great shots-- I think mine would have all been of empty sky, as I have the bad habit of pushing the button too late!

What goes up must come down too. That was a hilarious combination.
