Textures - Wood and Metal

Airstreams and airplanes share a rich developmental history involving wood and metal.

Vintage Airstreams utilized more wood; it was the same with airplanes. At one time wooden propellers orchestrated the sky and cut the clouds.

This photo is a textural juxtaposition of that shared history. Metal skin with a wooden propeller from a 1942 Avro Anson. The Anson was used primarily by the Royal Canadian Air Force/Royal Air Force as a wartime trainer.






One pilot penned this little poem about the Anson. You may do a double take - some of it sounds like an Airstream!

"Oh, the Crane may fly much faster
Inside she may be neat,
But to me the draughty Anson
Is very hard to beat.
Her plywood may be warping,
Her window glass may crack,
But when you start out in an Anson.
You know that you'll come back.”

joni78, it looks like we just missed each other in BC. What a spectacular place, eh?

I love that Montana is getting some representation here!
