A Piper PA-12 Super Cruiser float plane.
A modern Cirrus plane. (The one that can deploy a parachute in case of trouble)
The US Navy North American Aviation T-28 VT-5 trainer parks. This one is marked with service on the USS Lexington, the same ship my father served on in World War II. Although my Dad was a Naval Aviator, this trainer was not in service until 1948, which was after my Dad left the service
A well-coordinated take-off.
