You know that photograph of a pride of lions under the wing of a Twin Otter? This is the Copperstate Fly-In version; a “pride” of EAA members, Chapter 691, the Green Chile Chapter from Santa Fe, N.M., to be precise.
The gaggle of guys took shelter from the Arizona sun in the shade of a Piper TriPacer at last month’s Copperstate Fly-In.
The finger-pointing is a ritualistic greeting of their chapter, they said. All the members are pointing at airplanes that they’d like to own.
