100 Years of Naval Aviation

Since I didn't get a heritage flight during the air show, I decided to photoshop my own. I realize that the angles on the planes aren't right but it gets the idea across.For the Curtiss Model D, I decided to make it black and white to represent that era. On the Corsair, I tried to make it that washed out yellowish color you will see in World War II photos. I left the Hornet alone.

It is amazing how technology has changed in 100 years. The Curtiss didn't have any gages and the pilot had to kind of guess where he was. The Corsair was pretty state of the art for its day. The Hornet would be if I could have found a picture of the Super Hornet. Oh well.

Here's to 100 more years.
