Two Hearts Over Atlanta

Atlanta TRACON was very cooperative in letting us maneuver in their Class B airspace. It was a nice team effort.

The 2 couples on the golf course, looking up, says it all.

Our "Hearts of Hope Over Georgia" mission continues....
On Friday, our Falcon RV Squadron launched 15 RV's and flew hearts over medical centers in Thomaston and Griffin, Georgia///

Here are some photos: Hearts Over Thomaston & Griffin




Next, we plan to overfly Albany, GA medical facilities...One of the hardest hit areas in the COVID-19 pandemic.

Kudos to Dean Marvin ("Gumby") who planned and led this mission and earned his "Large Formation Lead" FFI qualification.
