Passenger in a C150 years ago, approaching Sebring in Florida. As we turned to join the pattern we spotted a couple of turkey vultures thermaling several hundred feet below and a short way ahead - didn't appreciate just how quickly they were climbing. One just went under the starboard wing, no idea about the other. Damn glad we didn't hit either.
