New! Airplanes, Helicopters, Engines + Flying


Friends, have I told you how much I love airplanes? Maybe a time, or two, or three.

They fascinate me!

Years ago, I used to hate flying. Now, I get on an airplane as often as I can because they give me great peace! I can’t be reached when I am thousands of feet in the air. Yes, I know, airplanes have Wi-Fi now (even on international flights), but believe me, when I am flying, no matter whether I am going to Addis or Dar es Salaam or London or Johannesburg or Lusaka or a few states away I am never checking my emails.

It’s a shame that the only place I can get a little peace from the world – even though temporary – is in the air.

I really love airplanes even though I have no idea how they function. I am always fascinated that big chunks of metal can lift off into the air and fly for hours to the other side of the world.

Amazing!

I am also in love with cargo helicopters. You know that ones that can carry an entire truck!

Engines

On a flight from Nairobi to Amsterdam a few years ago I looked out my window and saw this…

Who knew that GE made airplane engines and didn’t tell me? 

Apparently, GE make lots of engines and has an entire aviation division! I really had no idea. Now, I’m fascinated!

 I can’t wait to fly again! Soon!
