Operation moon shot... an old respected buddy posted this as his vale to fellow pilots as King Farouk's old haunts vanished in the Nile mist behind him for the last time!

I love the photo of the Yak-52 and wish it was mine... just like I wish I could photograph Cumulus Mammatus with the panache of Boac... ^:)^ =))

Not reliable, but they keep going even if things go wrong!

Still only one engine though, or does it have a hand crank or pedals to keep the prop turning if the engine quits?

No aircraft, but a great shot of Charlie Bravo taken in SA by a gifted photographer friend of mine...
