The Flight Line
"You're cleared for taxi Major"....
You might want to get out of the way if you see one of these hunters of the sky coming at you.
When I shot this photo, the air temperature was indicating 32C, and hotter yet on the tarmac. Course it could have been hotter yet if you were standing out back of the tail feathers of this bird of prey, based on the heat waves its generating in the photo as it prepares to taxi out to the runway for takeoff.
Did I tell you this bird is loud!
