About Jetminder

The photography of the beauty of aviation, the soaring bird and the sky that both the bird, and man's flying machines fly through have been a life long passion of mine as well as guitars is what my blog is about. I strive to find the dynamics that make these things happen and my aviation photography is used to take all of this beauty out of "the box."

Our cameras see beauty that the human eye will never see as the camera does one thing that the human mind is very week at, and that is to focus in detail beyond the human imagination.

I hope that you will have liked what you have seen.Thank you for your time in visiting this my blog.

Most aircraft are designed with positive static stability, which induces an aircraft to return to its original attitude following a disturbance
