Turn & Bank Over River Banks To Airport, Port & Beach Newport Beach To Port - IMRAN™

My 34th Photo to make it in Flickr Explore. Front Page on June 3, 2011!

I love flying. I love yachting & boating. I love the beach. I love travel. I love water. I love California. I love waterfront living. I love marine. I love marinas. I love wordplay. I love banks (along beautiful rivers, NOT financial institutions!).

This photo, taken through an aircraft window with a 5 years old pocket Nikon S6, has all of that - and more.

A banking turn in a plane is changing the direction of the aircraft while also turning by controlling how inclined it is to the horizon. I loved this steep banking turn to port (the left side of a plane or a yacht), as the aircraft banked over the banks of the beautiful riverlike body of water, over a sort of (boating) port and beach, near Balboa Island's Yacht Club and marinas, on the way to the airport at Newport Beach.
