Well, they'll bomb you when you're trying to be so good
They'll bomb you just like they said they would
They'll bomb you when you're trying to go home
And they'll bomb you when you're there all alone
But I would not feel so bummed
Everybody must get bombed

I'm on vacation in St. Augustine. The last several days I've been excited to see a biplane flying around every once in a while. I thought to myself the fourth or fifth time that I saw it that it would be cool to ride in it. And that was when I realized that that's exactly what it was doing. Giving rides.

Two days later....

Apparently there is a company that manufacturers brand new reproductions of a classic biplane. FAA certified with modern instruments but made of spruce frame and canvas.

My wife and daughter don't like flying much, so I went with my son. A 20 minute flight. It was an absolute blast.

Women can't resist a man wearing a leather helmet.

Some of those things, in black, were still in use when I went through military free fall training. I couldn't stand them.

It served three functions that I could see. First was that a strap on the top of it goes across the headphone band and snapped down on place to keep them from blowing off. The pilot also said they helped to hold your sunglasses in place if you turn your head and the wind catches the lens sideways and tries to pull them off. And finally it keeps any long hair from whipping around into you face. Our airspeed was around 80 mph or so the one time I looked at our gauges. The windscreen is pretty effective but I am tall and the top of my head was sticking out into the wind.

Oh. And there were controls in both cockpits, so we had to be very careful where we had our feet and hands. He said another pilot flipped on landing because a passenger in the front cockpit stepped on the brakes just as they touched down and the plane flipped over.

This is a long video, but you don't have to watch it.
