A picnic lunch and afternoon with friends made for a perfect summer Saturday. When I married a pilot I know I would be spending a lot of time around planes...and I have really grown to enjoy these events.
Over the past 30 years I have learned a lot about aircraft, as well. I can identify some of the types of planes by sight and even by sound. It is easy for me to identify the deep rumble of the engine belonging to T-6's. I can also identify by site a Piper Cub every time, and a Grumman Widgeon, among others. Though I will never be as sharp as Daryl, who can identify most any airplane flying overhead by site and sound, I am always excited when I identify one correctly.

A great way to spend my first weekend off for summer break.
It can be a little noisy, but you get used to it. :)
