While Waiting


Waiting is a huge part of aviation. You wait for the fueler to arrive, the mechanic to show, the weather to clear, 

and so forth. We'll present here a few things with which to amuse yourself as you while away the hours. 

This page will be ever changing and growing. Send us your favorites.

Take a look at the picture above. It is not animated. Your eyes are making it move. To test this, stare at one spot for a couple seconds and everything will stop moving. Or look at the black center of each circle and it will stop moving. But move your eyes to the next black center and the previous will move after you take your eyes away from it.
