Wonder how they took the shot. From another plane maybe?

actually I took the picture of the plane (its a StarDuster) from the ground. I took the one at the top of the page (of the Santa Cruz wharf) from the same plane.

Its open cockpit. The pilot sits in the back. It has a joystick for steering. It is a loud, windy, spectacular way to fly!!

looks like a lot of fun!

Looks like FUN! Did you get to go for a ride?

katherine. said...

Wow, that must have been a lot of fun being up there. I am so scared of heights. That would be the day I would sit on a open sitter like that. But I must admit , the view from the top is wonderful!

Awesome! :)
Looks like fun, but I think I'd be too scared.

Excellent! I've been up in a 2 seater Cessna, but never an open cockpit plane.

Must be great :-)

Are you a pilot?

My mom and stepdad used to own a Cessna.

katherine. said...

No - I'm not actually a pilot. However I am a very well trained passenger.

When I had three kids flying with us...I took enough lessons so I could hopefully, prayerfully, land a small plane if something happened to the pilot. My lessons were in a Cessna.

I've spend a great deal of time in a Piper Commanche (six seater - low wing)

I've flown a couple times for business in private jets...king air..its great. But Chris is right there is nothing like an open cockpit ride.

One note: I am very VERY selective with who I fly with. VERY.

Fab pic, being a passanger has to be just as good as being a pilot as it's just view gazing without any technical stuff x x

Great, scenic picture.

I am not a fan of small planes - or any plane for that matter.

But this is a nice looking bird.
