Model airplane?

One more shot from the Air and Space Museum. The "man" in the photo is obviously an model, and it makes this shot look like it must be of a model airplane also. However, the model aviator is about 6ft tall! (quite a bit taller than me!:-) ) The plane is a real one. There are a few displays like this in the museum, where they use models to try and show what it would have been like around a certain plane back when it was actually used.

I'm so pleased that you liked our Madrid photo and make it for your desktop!! Eso está genial!
Estos aviones son increíbles.. todavía recuerdo la primera vez que monté en un avión... cuando despegaba me entró un ataque de risa y no pude parar hasta pasado un buen rato... is that all right for you? I'm so sleepy and it's hard for me to write in english now... i'm going to take a nap ¡Siesta!
;) Have a nice weekend there!
