The Flying Circus

Yesterday I went to the Flying Circus to see the balloons but I admit that I loved the planes a lot more. Since my last flight in the F-16 in June 1984 (!), I haven’t had any desire to fly…until yesterday. The open cockpit just fascinates me. So perhaps…perhaps, I will ask to fly in one of these things. Not right now…too much other stuff going on. Maybe tomorrow or the next day.  I’m not sure what types of planes these were, one of them only had instruments that measured airspeed, RPM, compass direction, altitude, engine temperature, and oil pressure. What more do you need? The last one is some of the balloons. They were cool, too, but in a completely different, artistic sort of way.
