#NaBloPoMo Day 14, Cee’s Oddball Challenge

More simple than this?

2016 Runway Cafe233

How often do you get inside a cockpit? Even though this small Leer jet is about 40 years old, it still looks pretty complicated. It is not odd to think of flying as being complicated.

As Simple As This?

This cockpit seems like it is missing a few things. Well, maybe a roof to start. It does have a windshield. If you come to Woodlake to the Runway Cafe and you meet George Benson there, then maybe… You can go for private a tour of his hanger.

Can you guess this plane’s birth year?

The American Pickers would love this plane. It actually flies.

If you have any posts showing the cockpits, please post a link. It would be interesting to see how planes have changed over the years. Have you seen a less complicated cockpit than this one?

      We have a tiny airport in our town with a restaurant across the runway. People fly in from all over. George Benson repairs airplanes, and he was in the restaurant one day and I asked if I could bring my young friend, Edward over to see his hanger. He agreed, and we took quite a few pictures. It was a fun afternoon, but this old plane was my favorite. He has flown it several times. 🙂 Amazing, isn’t it?

    Oh my gosh! That plane looks so tiny! Pilots must have been much, much smaller back then.

      It is tiny. Looking at clothes from the early 1900s, it seems that most people were smaller. I’m amazed when I look at young people today, especially women. I’m sue that nutrition plays a huge part in height. 🙂
