Odd Shots Monday --- FOD or Not?

Back in the old days when I was in the U.S. Air Force, birds and planes were a really undesirable combination. A bird sucked into the wrong orifice or crashing into a windshield became deadly FOD -- Foreign Object Debris. But it seems that these pigeons are enjoying the ride! Of course, if you take a look at the next shot, you'll see that this plane has served her time and has been retired to the campus of Navarro College in Corsicana. I hope she's not feeling degraded by becoming a pigeon roost, but realizes that she still has a role to fill and can now peacefully co-exist with them!

Fly on over to Katney's Kaboodle to find more Odd Shots.

Great angle on the first shot. I have an air force connection too.

That's an old F-4 Phantom.....

Great planes and great angles. I really would just love to do a top gun in those.
