"Have You Seen My Mom?"

Is this ultralight seen at AirVenture 2011 a B-29 offspring or maybe a parasite? I wonder how many would fit in the bomb bays.

"Nobody Sneeze!"

Taken at the Scott Air Force Base air show last year. Cropped with just a little fill light so the tail numbers showed up better using Picasa. Sony A330. It would be nice to be able to upload more than one pic at a time.

Ed. Note: While we appreciate the thought, Gary, there's an ulterior motive to our limiting the upload to one photo at a time. In the interest of showcasing as many photographers as possible, we run only one submission per entrant each week and multiple uploads would mean that we might get to see more photos, but most of them wouldn't get a turn in the spotlight for our readers to enjoy.
