9/18/15 I had been unable to find any designs for the heroes of Flight 93 who deterred the 9/11 terrorists by forcing their plane to crash in PA. Then I asked Vicki if she had any ideas for a design and did she ever. Quick as a wink she had this digitized despite her heavy schedule preparing for her show and a visit to her dentist!

I used Brother Silver Metallic thread for the plane but it didn't photographed well.
Thank you dear Vicki for being a leader in designing for these heroes. I hope other digitizers will follow suit. By the way, she has generously placed this on her website as a Freebie. TU Vicki

Excellent piece and I do plan to stitch it.

Thank you. It stitches out quickly and so easily. The dark background suggested by Vicki is perfect, although my picture doesn't show it because of the glare. I suggest metallic silver for the plane body. I can't stop looking at mine, it's almost mesmerizing.

What a great job and a wonderful idea, topcat.
Vicki, this angel plane winging it's way heavenward is the perfect tribute. My top hat is off to you. ;)

Wonderful tribute tastefully done. Thanks to you and the talented designer for reminding us of those brave people who lost their lives.

It is so sad that the what once WAS "America" is being destroyed through pure hate, greed, ignorance.

Our grand and great grand children do not and will not know what they could have had and was destroyed for them

Thank you. Good people will keep our ideals alive, as did all the heroic figures of 9/11. We regroup and carry on.

I Love this design but I felt disturbed by it so I showed this design to hubby & he said the concept of the design is great but the plane is trying to fly forward but the wings are flying backwards maybe this was done on purpose.

I guess it is all a matter of perception.......I see the wings as flapping keeping lift on the plane........they are designed as decorative angel wings and was never intended to be a blue print for a real plane......

sailorgal by sailorgal 19 Sep 2015

Guess aerodynamics is not one of the designers strong points. However, she did a gorgeous design that fits the thought.

It looked great to me, too! But for those whose eyes perceive differently, just consider it as Artistic License. lol

basketkase by basketkase edited 19 Sep 2015

The best way I can describe my vision for this design is to picture the body of the plane as an angel floating to earth, with its head at the top of the tail, then the wing placement should make sense......

radmom by radmom 19 Sep 2015

I love your vision of this design! It is so beautiful!

basketkase by basketkase 19 Sep 2015

Thank you, Radmom

wendymay60 by wendymay60 19 Sep 2015

Makes sense to me. Read out the comment To Hubby & he said yairrr good. though the only thing he looked at is a Plane. He used to fly Gliders. yesterday I had a reminder of Aerodynamics

What an Awesome thought and design. I love this. About your photo get farther away and then zoom in with your camera lens. It always helps me to get rid of glare.

Thank you for that tip. This is the first time I have ever sent in anything and I couldn't figure out how to make this work as well as I've seen other pictures.

tlp22 by tlp22 18 Sep 2015

Just takes a few tests to figure out what works for you. Having a digital camera you can always delete the photos you don't want to keep.
