PLANES

Dreams of planes. No, not astral planes--the other kind. The exploding, crashing kind. Okay, okay, I know the statistics--I'm not even phobic, I just can't fly much for other reasons (try being severely allergic and being trapped in a pressurized box and see what happens to you). The only time I enjoy flying is in a small plane... or in my dreams.

So. Planes, a few helicopters, some airports... even a spaceport or two, because I didn't know where else to fit them in.

RELATED TOPICS: orbital dreams - balloons and dirigibles - cars, trucks and busses - trains and trolleys - flying without mechanical props (or FAA clearance) - the other kind of plane: astral - See also the full INDEX OF SUBJECTS.
