Taildragger Heaven In Houston Kicks Off AirPigz ‘CARS’

 The time has come to kick off the new AirPigz feature I call CARS.  You’ve probably figured out already that it’s not about ‘cars’, it’s about Cool Airplanes!  Big thanx to Ramp Spotter Curtis Lawson for sending in a great pic to get things started.

 This pic was taken recently with an iPhone as they were walking past the Texas Taildraggers hangar at KAXH (Houston Southwest Airport).  It was about 6pm and the low sun was shining in putting a beautiful glow and all those already golden taildraggers.  Stearman on the left, Cub in the middle and a Super Decathlon on the right… plus more goodies in the background : )

 Anyone can be a Cool Aircraft Ramp Spotter, and in fact your pix are needed to keep this ongoing feature moving forward.  Anytime I get pix that are good enuf, I’ll post ’em for everyone to enjoy. 

 You can get the scoop on what specifically I’m looking for in a pic by checking out the original CARS post.

It looks a bit like a toy shop with a lot of funcy toys. Those fragile looking planes do amazing things in the air. When you stand back and look at them it is difficult to believe that they fly.
