My son had a friend over to stay this weekend and the Dad came and picked him up this afternoon. They live about a three hour drive away so he came to pick the boy up in his place. Of course. Doesn't everyone? LOL

So that has inspired this week's theme of FLIGHT. Birds, plane, kites, airstrips or anything you can think of.

Another photo I took of the last flight of Concorde in November 2003. A very sad day for all sorts of reasons.



Edited to add missing 'e'.

That's a delightful model. I'd love to have something like that.
Wooden wheels, wooden wings, wooden fuselage, wooden fly.

I had to think about it for a while until the penny dropped, very funny!

You could build others. A hobby that could take off.

This is a picture I took on Friday when we went on the London Eye. The cabins are called 'flight decks' and this is the flight deck below ours.

A bird and a plane in the same pic?

Taken at Falcon Field in Mesa, AZ. There are some retired commuter planes there and this was one of them.

Then that's even more impressive, I was sure it was something bought from a shop.

How about a thread 'Here's one I made earlier' where people could post photos of things they've made with their own fair hands?

Thanks all for your interesting takes on Flight. Next week is a theme suggested by Martin Cube
