A morning in a warbird ....
What a great birthday present!
Without any idea of what was awaiting me on the morning after my birthday, my wife and daughter took me on a drive.
"We're meeting a friend from your past" was all I could get from her.
It wasn't long before I realised we were heading to the local airport, and that narrowed down who it could be to one person - a pilot I knew a little over 15 years ago, before he had his license.
Sitting in the instructors seat of the Chinese Warbird we performed aerobatic stunts
- pulling up to 3.8G's during the morning's activities of rolls, turns, dives, spins, loops and so on.
If you get the chance - take it
