Wordless Wednesday: Flying High

Terri’s Wordless Wednesday topic of High #Flight inspired me to go back 12 years, to General Aviation Day at our local Paine Field in 2010.  They had a variety of old airplanes on the ground, and in the air.  The day was what a photographer would describe as “cloudy bright”, which is great for taking pictures.  Here are a couple.



These old military planes were in their original World War II livery.

I am hoping that photos taken FROM a high-flying plane are allowed!


And these are “high-flying”, though they’re not airplanes.

EDIT:  I thought I’d link to Marsha’s Always Write blog for “Writer’s Quote Wednesdays”, her theme being Transportation.  She has some great pictures there, that appeal to me as a transportation freak from way back.

I also thought I’d add some more photos of planes on the ground, at the air museums we’ve visited, and airports.  How about this specially-painted Alaska Airlines jet?

Flyers, on a flyer?  This was seen at an air and space museum in South Dakota.

And, seen on the grounds of the US Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs:


This is a B52 long-range bomber.  This type of airplane has been in continuous service since the 1950s, and they are still being upgraded.  I am intimately familiar with this, as in my last job as an aerospace buyer, I purchased circuit-card assemblies for the flight deck of the B52.  I feel like there’s a tiny bit of me in every B52 that gets its upgrade.

And here’s the Link to Terri’s Original Post.

  1. These are great shots! Wordless Wednesday is a free for all, no themes, and no links necessary but I do appreciate the shout out. Marsha at Always Write is hosting WQW with the theme of planes, so I’m sure she wouldn’t mind if you linked to her post.

  2. Hi, thanks for linking to WQW (Writer’s Quotes Wednesdays) You have some beautiful pictures. Your mountain picture is stunning. Which one is it? It reminds me of Mt. St. Helens, but that’s long gone. 🙂 When you link to a challenge, don’t forget to follow the challenge rules. In this case, your post should include one or more quotes from someone else about the topic ie. planes, or transportation. 🙂 I hope that helps. thanks again for reading my post.
