Jimmy Franklin's odd hybrid plane with a strapped on jet engine beneath the frame of this 1939 Waco biplane. It's a quite a surreal experience to see a biplane with a ridiculous climb rate and the aural signature of a fighter jet. [Canon 300D; Canon 70-200 2.8 IS]

The world is going to miss such a great performer. And this has to be one of the best tributes to him.....
