It's been a little while since I've been able to post, but here is another batch of photos from Ivan's short time in Palm Beach.
It's hard for us to imagine a world without flight. Try to imagine that you very rarely see an airplane, or imagine that a B17 is going to be flying by at low altitude. I don't know if you feel the same way I do, but I'm going to grab my camera, and get as many shots as I can. I just can't get enough of airplanes flying by, low. I love the feeling in these two photos, especially the cloudy sunset above. You can practically feel the light, warm, evening breeze.
These next two feature Ivan with the Flying Boat, and they show a bit of detail, which is fun. I'm looking primarily at the make shift extension of the hull down low on the side of the fuselage. Interesting.
There are a bunch of photos of people around this plane, and a few more of local events which are historically interesting still to come. After his stay in Palm Beach, Ivan moved on to another instructor, which we'll see in future posts.
