War Birds

There are 2 retired men who live here in town that own vintage war planes.

Almost every afternoon they take off from the local airport and fly around until just before sunset.

A while back they hosted a fly-in for a group of other vintage plane owners and the airfield was filled with these cool old planes.

There have been a lot of letters in the newspaper lately about these guys and their planes. The majority of the letters are written by angry people who say the noise from these planes irritates them.

They are a little noisy but it's not like they hover over the house. You hear them, get a look and then they and their noise are gone.

I like them. I enjoy watching them fly overhead and the noise doesn't bother me.

There's something interesting about these old guys and their old planes. I guess those people writing nasty letters just don't have anything better to complain about.
