He's a poet.
He's a picker.
He's a prophet.
He's a pusher.
He's a pilgrim
and a preacher
and a problem when he's stoned
He's a walkin' contradiction partly truth and partly fiction
Taking every wrong direction on his lonely way back home

Counted the Stars

Counted the stars on the 4th of July
Wishing we were rockets bursting in the sky
Talking about redemption and leaving things behind
As the sun sinks west of the Mendocino county line

Polish air force retires last An-2 transport

This was at Flight Global.
I do get to see one of these at Edwards AFB from time to time. It shows up for the USAF Test Pilot School.
These are amazing airplanes. Sixty years of service!

One wonders just how many AN-2s are still in service. I KNOW there are more than a few DC-3s still flying and that plane is much older than the AN-2. The Wiki has an excellent article on the AN-2, as well.

When the AF Test Pilot School uses one, it has to be good!
