Here are some pics from our fly-in to Oceano today (link).

As beautiful as all these pictures are (and I am jealous :mrgreen: ), there is something definately wrong. Why do all these "planes" have a prop on the nose instead of an engine and prop hanging off the wings as a real plane should have :P
