JoF: Hello everyone. I am at Otteray Scribes house, visiting for the weekend. We decided to do today's post together. But get this -- I am the one who picked the videos. My selection criteria were 1) bright colors, 2) lots of vvvvvvvvvvvrrrrrrrr sounds, and 3) getting queasy while watching. Let's see how I did.
Good Morning Kossacks and Welcome to Morning Open Thread (MOT)
We're known as the MOTley Crew and you can find us here every morning at 7:00 am Eastern (and perhaps sometimes earlier!). Feel free to volunteer to take a day - permanently or just once in awhile. With the Auto Publish feature you can set it and forget it. Sometimes the diarist du jour shows up much later: that's the beauty of Open Thread...it carries on without you! Volunteer in the comment threads.

OS: I like bright color and lots of noise but don't get the queasy part. What is queasy about THAT?? Now this is queasy:
Pilots don't care for high places. Go figure.
JoF: That's another thing that makes me queasy. Shall we move on to the airplane videos?
That is a cool Stearman PT-17 flying over the fields and trees. 1943 model in original Army Air Corps colors. Here is CelticLassie in an identical Stearman, but this one is a 1942 model with a 450 HP Pratt & Whitney engine instead of the puny 220 HP that came with the original.
JoF: She is adorable! Ready for another one?
OS: I like this one better. Philipp Steinbach designed this airplane and says if a snap roll doesn't hurt, you're not doing it right.
Jof: OK, smarty pants. How about this one?
OS: Mama always told us kids to keep our arms and elbows inside the car. I think that applies here as well.
