That poor Cessna 150 could sure do with a bit of love, it doesn't look like it's been washed in a year.

But it does look like your brother enjoyed it.
He was thrilled to bits! As I said, he has his heart set on becoming an airline pilot and is obsessed with aircraft and flying - he was absolutely beaming when he came out! We're going to get him another couple of light flights at some point

He did, however, say he's a little bit tall for the Cessna - he found the cabin space a bit low on the auld noggin!

It's not wide either, he must have had a skinny instructor.

An oldie from DA560+1.4TC on the K3 at 784mm handheld, credit to the moderate weight at which you get to this extreme focal length with the DA560.
A Grasshopper warbler in very early morning sun. Their "singing" when I first heard it was an enigma: how could their be grasshoppers or crickets in the first week of may as northernly as that? There couldn't of course..

I know you have moved on, Chris, but I wonder if you still use this lens?

Another great DA560 image with the TC. Handheld at 1/200 at 784mm shows that the SR works really well! I have not used the K-3, but I have found the K-1 SR to work superbly with the long lens...

I love owls and always feel jealous of the lucky ones who have shot them in the wild before dawn...
