UP UP AND AWAY
As long as I've known Colin (14 years) hes wanted to go up in a Tigermoth plane. This year he got his wish.
Colin was quite calm and excited to arrive at RAAF, then was asked the question "would you like mild acrobatics" he didnt think about it for long before he answered "no", and I wouldn't be doing my job as a wife if I didnt persuade him to change his mind. You will might never get the chance again.. "go for it "I say. .. "Okkkkk" responded Colin. Put the leathers on and refill the plane then we are off. I would be lying if i said he wasnt nervous, (He did better than me, you wouldnt get me in one of those if my life depended on it).
Click Click getting lots of photos, and off he goes.
The Joyflight was a 45 minute scenery tour of the beaches and city of Melbourne.
Time for the plane to come back in, I go outside in waiting for the view of the plane to come in sight, then before i know it he has landed.. White as a Ghost I must say, I have a video of Colin kissing the ground as he got out.
Then afterwards to the RAAF (Royal Australian Airforce) Museum, to see spectatuclar airoplanes and all the old equipment they used on & off the planes. If I had been bloging by then I would no doubt have plenty of photos.
