Brett M hasn't watched the majesty of a Goony Bird taking off. or listened to the sound of a pair of 1830s.
They ain't dog whistles (Darts) or roaring fans, but big round engines ooozing through the air.

Why aviation?
It's in the blood... I'm in the third of four generations of pilots.
Gypsie Moths to 737s. I haven't had the pleasure of flying a Gypsie but my grand father, father and uncle did... Tiger's close enough though!
Proud to be one of those mushrooms that pop up when an interesting aeroplane arrives.

With all due respect Sixtiesrelic, I have in fact heard DC3's take off on several occasions and I agree that the sound of a radial engine is something very unique.

I however have a passion for Jet technology and the sight, sound & smell that goes with it. At 29 years of age, it's a pity I wasn't old enough to remember the days before the new generation of quieter engines and hushkiting came along.

A kind of a new interest, actually. I'm into photography anyway and really appreciate the talent of others. When you combine photography with aviation, you tend to get some pretty passionate people and some pretty amazing photos.

Watching the aircrafts take off has always amazed me , with thier sheer size and weight and capilbilities to fly for long periods of time laden with weight .
The colours and designs , logos , all interest me greatly .
The roar of the engines as it flys over you is awesome , love it !!!
Not to mention the smell of the fuel and what have u :mrgreen:
The different types of aircraft that flys is also interesting.
I also like to be inside an airport , seeing the departures and arrivals board - a wealth of information !!
While sitting down in airport , it can be quite interesting to see ppl rushing around to their departure gates for thier flights , some ppl take it easy , some taking pixs of their aircraft they are about to fly on etc
so overall , aircrafts , aviation is life to me , I have dreamed of aircrafts ever since I was small fella :)
