Up In The Air, Jr. Birdman!!!

Okay Okay So clearly I've been lax on blogging about my travels in SL.  Well here is something to remedy that a little.  So, a few mornings ago, I was up early and OOPSING (an affectionate term Taylee and I use for when we make an impulsive extravagant purchase ... lol,) and happened upon a really cool World War II era Aviators cap on market place.  Well, with a little modding to make it my own, I began the elusive search for a nice-looking bomber jacket which I finally found at a store called Lapointe & Bastchild.  They are well textured and come in a fat pack of six colors, as well as a resizer.

Well ... sure as you knew it, the OOPSING began in earnest, as NOW Tay and I needed a suitable aircraft.  My RL father was an airplane pilot and I pretty much grew up with it, fiddling with flight simulators, as well as actually taking to the skies with my father whenever possible.  I've owned a number of SL airplanes and my particular favorites ar ones made by Drusilla Saunders.  So Taylee and I found this GREAT one.  A King Air C90 Sailplane.  This baby's APPOINTED, let me tell ya!  And the realest (at least as real as I'd like to get without actually logging any hours behind the wheel of a REAL C90) aviation experience.
