Plane Silly

Plane Silly 1

So we’re flying the jets back to base after a cross country and things are going fine except the captain is getting all bent out of shape because I’m flying with my knees and taking pictures out the window. What’s the big deal. I’m at least three feet from his precious plane. Not even close. But he “orders” me, so I go to put my camera back in the bag. That’s when it happened. My camera bumps my cup holder and my latte’ spills and burns the heck out of my leg. My knee bumps the controls then my plane bumps the captain’s plane. It was an accident. Anyway, this is the last image of the captain’s plane before he ejected. It’s OK though. I was ready for civilian life. Really. I’m fine.


There’s a big jet on a pedestal outside of the Naval Aviation Museum. The clouds were awesome so I shot it. The shot is fine and there’s no need to embellish it with some corny Top Gun story. 😉

  1. Hey thats what happened.. I knew that plane looked familiar. I was just minding my own business, and this plane comes falling out of the sky. I had to jump out of the way, but luckly I was able to snap a shot of it before it crashed into the ground and blew up into a million pieces!
