Challenge has finished
Another motorized transportation challenge, this one for pilots or others who like planes and flying. This is for any aircraft with a motor. No gliders, please. Any thing else in the shot is fine, as long as there is an aircraft. Blimps and zeppelins are fine, but no hot air craft.
