Weekly Photo Challenge: Free Spirit

This week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge’s theme is “Free Spirit”.

.

What is freer than flying through the clouds like a bird…

.

Up Up and away..upside down that is

.

Dancing with the birds..

.

The Iron Eagles that is..

.

And one Thunderbird

.

And two Thunderbirds..

.

And Four Thunderbirds!

.

And six Thunderbirds!!

.

Even the cloud trails were spectacular.

This post is dedicated to a true Free Spirit, Pilot Glenn Smith, who lost his life during an accident at the Quad City Airshow in Iowa this weekend.

As the crowd observed a minute of silence, a five plane formation approached, one plane flew off into the skies leaving a missing man in tribute, which flew to the sound of Taps. It was deeply touching.

.

My deepest sympathies to his family, friends and to his teammates.

May his spirit forever fly free.
