I live in Meadeville, PA and there is a small airport there. I saw an interesting :D biplane and went to look at it, and I noticed this. We aren't terribly far from Pittsburgh, so it is very likely that Soji flew here. Not to mention that he has these chocks on his blog.

So, I'm guessing there's a chance that that plane belonged to Mr.Soji?

A striken F-15. Luckily I had my camera to hand as I was photographing some motorsport at the time.

Is that fuel or just a one-wingtip contrail? Looks a little thick for a contrail...

An R-22, some forest fire spotting helicopter, a couple floatplanes, and a CF-100 on a stick being stripped of paint. I see more aircraft in this small town than in my home city...

Man we treat the old canucks like they're tanks. There's one that's been sitting in a field by the ottawa museum for years now and it doesn't really look all that worse for wear.

The chocks are Captain YS's. I read his blog post regarding them. I haven't spotted anything yet but PHI helicopters fly over many times per day. They rumble our house so I guess their prob. S76's.

You went to the single most awesome air museum. I have been there once, but need to go again and spend several days there.


1x Delta 737 not too sure on much else but that. It was at a distance.

4 F-16's flying in arrow formation. They landed at Allama Iqbal International Airport today. They plan to do a flypast all over Lahore tomorrow for Independence day. Back in the old day's, it was usually just one worn out propeller plane trailing green smoke. :lol: :lol:
