    It seems like sunsets are always a little more special when you view them through the flying wires! Yesterday was a beautiful evening to be in the Starduster!

    Everything looks better seen between the wings :)

    Thanks for sharing. Cheered me up as I wait in yet another TSA lineup.

    Do 4 wings count? I love sunsets. Sometimes it's the only part of the day that goes right......

    If your Biplane has a good rate of climb then as the sun sets below the horizon you
    can climb until the sun rises again above the horizon and see another sunset.
    And repeat until you can't climb anymore or when it is going to be too dark to land.

    Talk about rainbows. I have seen rainbows that completely surrounds my airplane
    Also when flying over White clouds and you see the shadow of your airplane on them you
    see the pilots cross on the cloud. Sometime when things are right your shadow of the
    Pilots cross there will be a rainbow completely around it. Guess you call that a rain circle not a bow.
