Picture of the Week

The classic lines of the Nanchang CJ-6 and the beautiful background sold us on this lovely image. Colin McGeachy is the windblown pilot and John Weir took the photo near Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Wind In My Hair

Colin McGeachy flying the Ottawa (CYRP) based Nanchang CJ-6 over the Wadawaska River, just to the West of Ottawa (Canada). Although it looks cool the wind and noise were intense. Luckily, John managed to snag this great shot for the short amount of time I had the canopy fully open. Sadly the aircraft is going to new home but this photo will remain on my living room wall for ever. Photo by John Weir taken with a Nikon D800 and a AF-S Nikkor 28-300 MM lens. Permission from John Weir to submit to POTW.
