Default Oregon International Airshow video

Last weekend the West Coast Ravens performed in their first Oregon International Airshow at Hillsboro Oregon. Both days formations were well flown with a 6-Ship maneuvering routine. Steve 'Shifty' Payne did an outstanding job of organizing, briefing, and leading the flight. The flight consisted of:

Steve Payne - Lead - RV-8
George Ford - #2 - RV-8
Pete Forsyth - #3 - RV-4
Dan Benua - #4 - RV-3B
Stephen Christopher - #5 - RV-7
Joe Blank - #6 - RV-6

Here are a few pics and video of the event...

In the end George Ford compiled this great video from all of the inflight GoPro cams that were attached to various aircraft in the flight. As you can see here, George has MAD video skills...

Very proud of my "homies". Sorry I wasn't able to join in the fun. Throwing arrows at Elk in Colorado might have to be rescheduled next year.

Cipher - another fabulous video.

Well done boys!
