On my recent visit to the countryside, my friend and I went for a civilised, post-dinner evening stroll through the fields around her village. On our adventures, we found some Cherokee planes...
I know, we probably weren't supposed to go onto the airfield, but there was a public right of way path running along the edge of it, and we weren't out for sabotage so we decided it would be harmless fun.
I've heard of Cherokee planes but don't really know anything about them so can't say much more. I just love the old school look (and sound) of them.
So I had a quick browse of the internet for some history and found a couple of fun facts:
- The first Cherokees were introduced in 1960
- The original style of wing was colloquially known as the Hershey Bar wing as its convex shape had a resemblance to the chocolate bar.
But that's about all I have to say on planes, so I'll just fill the rest of the post with pretty pictures of the English countryside in mid-summer.
