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!
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.
These cool dudes stood on the side of the runway and got great action shots of the aircraft taking off and landing. Check out there photos below!!
A Cirrus pilot showed up, but he was too scared. (guy with shorts in photo below)
