My Greatest Birthday Present Ever!

As much as I love open air traveling, I've always wanted to fly in an open cockpit plane, preferably with a radial engine. My wonderful wife hooked me up with a 40 minute flight in a 1941 Steerman Navy Trainer!! Unbelievable! This was one of the greatest experiences I've ever had. Even got to take the controls for a while. The smell of the exhaust, the feel of the radial throughout the plane, and the direct connection through the controls is just incredible! What a trip back in time. I couldn't stop thinking about the guys that used to fly such vehicles in combat situations. Man, I've got to tell ya' , if you like motorcycling....
