A heads up. Tickets for the 2022 Royal International Air Tattoo, Fairford UK, including arrivals days are now on sale.

Since it supports a charitable trust, many purchasers of 2020 and 2021 tickets will have carried them over therefore the show is likely to sell out more quickly than in previous years.

Strapping a floor fan to my back while sitting in a lawn chair suspended by venetian blind cord tied to spinnaker cloth isn't something I see myself doing with or without a helmet anytime soon. ..... EDIT THAT........Anytime!

My wife and I are photographing a world premiere of a new Opera about women in aviation and their plane, the Beechcraft Staggerwing. The Opera will be performed this weekend and we will be there. We have been to the rehearsals and have seen the set which will be used and have seen the Staggerwing which is at the Air Museum where the Opera will be performed. Here is the Beechcraft/Goodyear Staggerwing and a few of its cousins from days gone by.

This location was once our airport and is next to Spirit Aircraft.

More from the Air Museum. These are military planes which include bombers and jetfighter planes. I know one is a B-47 but I think one is a B-52 and I am clueless about fighter planes.

While my wife was taking cast photos around the Beechcraft Staggerwing, I ventured out again into the nearest display area to get my fix of ancient planes. I have pictures of a plane piloted by Mickey Mouse. I did not get the name of the plane but will get it tonight as the actual premiere takes place and the place will be inundated with local dignitaries having their photos taken on the red carpet next to the Beechcraft Staggerwing airplane. The Staggerwing was the plane piloted by the first women pilots to win the Bendix trophy.

Some of a Texaco plane with the description. The first one is the skirt on the front wheel of the plane. Very fancy!

Looks kind of like a Curtiss Jenny.

I've flown in a Beech Staggerwing as a teenager in the 1960s. They were quite luxurious inside.

The Opera was a great success and my wife has worked her rear end off for a week taking hundreds of shots. The story was about Louise Thaden who with co-pilot Blanche Noyes, won the Bendix Trophy as the first women winner. They piloted a Beechcraft Staggerwing and the story revolves around Walter and Olive Ann Beech sponsoring this team and the problems it brought between the Beech duo. It was very emotional since Blanche had lost her husband in a plane crash earlier. My wife mimicked the photo of the original Louis Thaden in front of the Staggerwing with her version with the lead of the Opera. The first is the original photo of Louise Thaden, the next is the color photo of the Opera star in the same pose in color and the last is her black and white conversion of thecolor shot. The plane was inside so Linda had to photoshop the old airport where the plane refueled en
