Been on the road lately,
with hardly time to sit down
and write a word.
This plane is a beauty
I'd heard about and finally
got to see at the Arlington Fly-in.
A twin that burns only
10 gallons per hour with dual
Rotax 912 engines

Had some good guesses on the prop picture of the radial engine  aircraft.
I really didn't think anyone would get it with just that picture - could have been any number of planes. KEVIN MILLER noticed the scoop at the bottom of the cowling and, having just seen the derelict one at Harvey field, correctly identified it as an Antonov AN-2.
Here are some more pictures of this beautiful plane

Anyone going to the Arlington Fly-In this this weekend?
I'll be hanging out at the 99s Booth Friday afternoon, so stop by and say Hi!

Pretty, pretty!
Free book to the first one who can tell me what type of plane this is on

Check out this amazing sky over Chicago a couple of days ago.
I thought maybe aliens were going to come swarming through the crack in the atmosphere or perhaps Thor would swoop down with his mighty thunder hammer.
(Yeah, I saw The Avengers this weekend)
