Near & Far
Normally I don't take shots of planes but these were unique and not too far above my head. I was at the lake when I saw them. The 2 lower ones seemed very close to each other. Didn't even see the high one under the nose of the white one until processing. Some friends who are into planes said "the plane that's far away looks like a Southwest Airlines 737. The ordinary airplane that's close is one of several fairly ordinary planes painted in a "Civil Air Patrol" color scheme. It's not unusual, and it's a regular visitor to the lake. The odd one that you got, with no tail and with a pusher prop (propeller in the rear) looks like a Velocity Aircraft XL, a really neat, high-performance airplane that you can build from a kit. An unusual airplane. As for why they were flying so close, they might just have been practicing formation flying. Thanks Tony & Erin.
