Axel, there's the perfect number of wheels in that picture, just too many wheel pants!

Happy New Year to you guys out there.

Yeah that nose wheel guy needs love too. We also had Rosie and Sun Block as 5 and 6 but to get that picture we were way outside the FFI references and it was tough to fly. The tail end was working hard. We have a picture of all 6 of us over the Capital.

Happy new year to you guys too!

For those not versed in formation, AX-O is absolutely correct in that we were WAY out of limits (visual cues) so this flight was performed with the best of the best pilots to be safe. I can tell you that the wing step of #4 (Rotor) was in-line with the where the flap meets the fuselage...yes...I felt like I was looking straight up. Once I got the sight-line figured out, the wing roots all lined up for a moment every now and then. Here's the picture by Mark Loper over the Capitol in Sacramento Rosie

PS: AX-O's picture below just reminded me that we did this in the afternoon and also had the sun-in-the-face to contend with...

This is a picture from Rotor's plane during that shot. It was taken by his wife.
