Liftoff, Spoilers Up, Touchdown!

Man oh man… I once again snapped way too many photos on this recent trip to Michigan and Florida with the iPhone and Nikon. I’ve been digging through the mess, slowly tossing the shit shots as I go along. In-flight and wing photos are so cliche’ of course but for yours truly, aircraft are an obsession. It’s the physics of flight that have always fascinated me since I was younger, what is involved in thrusting a 100+ ton aircraft up to eight miles above the Earth’s surface? A lot of physics! Would you like pretzels or peanuts? A filet steak!
