We had 13 aircraft and 19 people show up and participate in the Photo Flight Fiesta! We would have had at least 4 more, but these folks had other commitments. (they missed out big time!)
We did a formal formation flight lesson and pre-brief in the arrival/departure building at Buffalo Airport (KCFE). For many this was their first time doing a formation flight.
Nick was our awesome photographer! He is a professional airshow photographer and parachutist with over 10,000 sky dives under his belt. Photography is his passion and he shoots amazing photos!
Formation Flight Pre-brief
Air to Air Photographer: Nick Halseth
Photo Ship: C177RG
The photo ship was our Cessna Cardinal RG. This aircraft is equipped with a removable side window and no wing strut or landing gear, making it a great air to air photo platform. It was piloted by James Aarestad, ATP, CFI, CFII, MEI, +10,000 hours. He has taught and conducted hundreds of formations flights.
