View From Above: Inside the Belly of a Gigantic Bird!


Whenever I hear someone say they hate to fly in an airplane, it's perplexing.

To me, flying is awesome. Just to think of getting into a plane, having it rumble and roar down a runway, and then take off into the heavens is beyond thrilling.  The invention of the airplane has got to be one of the most unique among human inventions. It's like being inside the belly of a gigantic bird!




Whenever I have the opportunity to fly,  a window seat is always requested. Never, ever do I tire of looking down on the view below. The ant-sized cars, the criss cross designs of modern architecture, turquoise swimming pools the size of quarters, miniature trees in a variety of shades of green, and so on make flying a thrill. 



As the plane inches higher and higher into the air, layers of fluffy white clouds cover the scenery and make me yearn to leave the plane and start jumping.




     (Coming down, about to land!)




Today's photos came from a plane ride to Ohio from Albany, New York to attend a nephew's wedding.  As always, the flight turned out to be a delight!

I enjoy flying most of the time. I love to look out the window like you do. Flying to different parts of the country gives you so many different patchworks!

Hi Susan :) Thanks for your sweet comment :) I've flown in both a big Airliner once, and I've been in a 2 seater plane...when I was young my Dad use to rebuild the smaller 2-seater planes, then fly them for awhile before selling it. Then he'd turn around and buy another wrecked plane and start all over again. I flew with him just a couple of times. It was pretty amazing being up there and looking down at everything looking so small :)

Have a great weekend, warmest, Brenda

I love the take off! One of my most memorable flights was to Mexico. Seeing OUR Mississippi River empty into the Gulf was awesome and the cruise ships looked like toys.

Hi Susan, my 11 year old says he is looking forward to going to the States, but he is not looking forward to the plane ride. With time accounted for arriving at the airport, layovers, etc., total travel time for us will be about 21 hours and then I have to get the rental car and drive to our hotel (thankfully, only about 30 minutes away). Total flight time is about 16 hours. Ugh! Next time I check in, it will be from the US. :) Best wishes, Tammy

The view from a plane is to see man's hand as though he were a master quilt5er

If you are not afraid of heights, it must be great! I've only gotten on a plane once, some 15 years ago, and it was nerve-wracking. I did love the destination, but the getting there was a bit stressful :-)

thanks for sharing!
