Re: First air-to-air shots of N8WQ

One Sky Dog


I tried to fly formation with a Taylorcraft one day in my Dragonfly VW. I went around that block once. So I took a critical look at your two pictures. You were a field ahead of him by the time he snapped the second one!

Charlie gets the "CSI Colorado" forensics award. I was dragging it along at about 85 and my friend in the Champ was speeding along at 70, so I still went by him pretty fast. When he gets his Stearman out of hibernation, I may be able to get in formation then and get some good photos.

Look at the sandbar position on the strut and Jays tail position relative to the sandbar in the two photos. This is a flyby no formation here.

I took my Tri-Pacer to Copperstate two days ago great weather high 60’s low70’s. I do not have that patchy white stuff Jay! Great photos!

What? You could fly with a Champ? Did you install flaps or something? I don't see a drag parachute in the photos.

Went up and flew by my buddy in his Champ this morning, so he took some pictures. I did not crop, because the scenery is as interesting as my little plane (but I am pretty proud of both the scenery and my plane). Hope you enjoy the winter look of my neck of the woods/desert.
