    Photos from Flying around Vancouver

    I took these a couple of days ago when a friend (training to be a commercial pilot) took me and a couple others flying. It was pretty cool.

    1. The Beast, our Cessna.
    2. A portion of downtown Vancouver
    3. Overlooking the Harbour Centre
    4. My neck of the woods

    Please don't post in the General Photo Comp or you'll leave us all with no chances of winning

    AWESOME photos Shawn, got any more??

    My college has aviation as a major and students have to complete a certain number of flight hours before graduating. They're often offering other students plane trips for a price so that they can pay for the plane rental... I should go on one of those one day

    17. Bad angle photo looking over northwestern islands
    18. Looking northward down Howe Sound

    19. The careful observer will spot a house on the left street with a White Van in the driveway and a silver Porsche 944 parked out front

    Thanks for the comment Niko!

    That is all

    He came dancing across the water
    With his galleons and guns
    Looking for the new world
    In that palace in the sun
    On the shore lay Montezuma
    With his cocoa leaves and pearls

    Not in 2004 it wasn't

    I wonder how many of these surveys there are? All catering to various city's ego no doubt. Melbourne is a dump as far as I'm concerned. Personally, I'd rather live in the tropics

    But Vancouver does look good, nice pics
