Imagine seeing an airshow from the eyes of a nine-year old.
Mandy Wainfan has been taking photos for, oh, 4 months now and has been tromping around Sun ‘n Fun shooting whatever pictures her battery life will support.
“I’ve been on a DC-3 before. My mother was the pilot and I thought it was really cool to hear about it so I took this picture,” she reports.
Mandy wasn’t alive when this plane was built, but she wasn’t alive when she flew on a DC-3 either. Mandy, my daughter, was in my tummy when she first flew on a DC-3. I was taking an hour of dual instruction, a present from my husband, Barnaby.
And while most pilots and photographers are focused on the aluminum, it sometimes takes a fourth-grader to notice the flowers where the adults see the mud.
If you’re at Sun ‘n Fun, watch out; your picture might be taken by KITPLANES’ youngest “Cub” reporter.
