Rivetting, Frank!
Frank L Croston.: Lots of it, Elisabeth!
I googled this to try and discover which Beechcraft aeroplane it was. My best bet is the Beechcraft 18 Twin Beech, Expeditor N45CF which is a beautiful craft.
Frank L Croston.: I think you could be right, Bill, it was a beauty.

A very polished Beechcraft. The rivets provide nice grain.
Frank L Croston.: Great looking plane, Louis.
More abstract than not. I even see mountains.
Frank L Croston.: Yes you can, Mt' Eldon I think...
One can't ask for much better reflections than that, what a lovely old plane.
Frank L Croston.: Indeed, Brian, it was a beauty.

There was a phase for American planes not to be painted. I wonder if this one gets polished?
Frank L Croston.: It certainly looked like it did, Alan.
i remember back in the 50's when most passenger planes were shiny like this Frank... at least Air Canada planes...
at age to i hadn't traveled out of Sudbury yet....petersmile
Frank L Croston.: They do look good like this, Peter.
Where did you find that, Frank?
Frank L Croston.: Flagstaff airshow 2015, Tom.
There is a ghostly feel to this image Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Maybe the fact that you can almost see through it, Andrew, who knows?
I like the reflections...
Frank L Croston.: Me too, Larry.
