Aviation is one of the most interesting and rewarding avocations a human being can experience.
Since the Wright Brothers first brought powered flight to the world airplanes have intrigued and drawn mankind to the skies.
As a pilot since 1961 I have experienced so many things I wish I could share, but when I do many really do not appreciate what I am telling them.
The Kopp-Etchells Effect
The kopp-etechells effect has a strange name, but it creates an incredible image:
The beauty of this image makes one stop and think for a few minutes.
As we look through the detail of the image we can imagine a strange vehicle landing on a far-away planet.
But that is not what it is. This is a US military Osprey in the desert transporting personnel to and from locations.
It makes me appreciate what our soldiers do to protect all of us.
Keep your wings straight and level Hersch!
