The background in all these images is a photo I took on the Rhine River.

(The Graf Zeppelin wasn't there at the time - I've added that in later. In case that wasn't obvious.)

And barnstorming, by the way.

2018-09-01 Rerun commentary: When I was a student in the Astrophysics Department at the University of Sydney, the department had a secretary named Barb. She was an older lady, I guess in her sixties. She was competent and efficient and helpful to everyone in the department. I thought of her as the kindly old lady in the office.

Until I discovered that she had a pilot's licence and on weekends she flew light planes. Not only flew them, but she performed aerobatics.
