I have to admit that I have had a fascination with airplanes since childhood. I grew up in areas of the country where you didn't get to see many planes fly overhead and when they did I was transfixed watching them and day dreaming about all the places they would take me when I was rich and famous.

I never did become rich or famous, and as I was reaching my retirement years as a cash strapped widow I began to believe that a plane trip was not in the cards for me. Then suddenly that all changed when I met the Old Salt. If you have spent much time around this site or checked out the "about us" tab you know that we met on a singles site and The Old Salt relocated to Missouri when we married. During our short courtship I got not one, but five chances to experience the trill of air travel.

These next two shots look like a remote controlled toy in the sky, but, they are both full sized planes captured near our local airport.
