The starfighter.

This is my flight instructor's plane. Lucky me is learning how to fly it :) It's a Chinese Nanchang CJ6A military trainer. Looks old, feels old, but it was built in 1982. I call it the starfighter because, well, that's what it feels like when I'm flying in it. Just the coolest thing ever. I'd never flown in a plane with a canopy... it is the most amazing thing to be able to look around and see forever. To look up and watch the clouds coming closer. To sneak a peek into the troposphere.
