Default Air to Air Photo Shoot



Early Saturday morning I finally did an air to air photo shoot with Peter Lubig, a professional aviation photographer. We've been trying to make this happen since early this year, but something always got in the way - my schedule, his schedule, my aircraft U/S, his aircraft U/S, etc.

We briefed on the phone, then I got airborne just after 7 AM, after waiting for some low fog to move off. We rendezvoused overhead the airport at Peterborough, then did the photos. The results were definetly worth the wait. You can see a whole bunch more images from the session in the gallery on his site.

I stole the paint scheme from the RCAF Golden Hawks, an aerobatic team who flew F-86 Sabres in the 50s and 60s.

Nice Kevin!

The background in 5781 makes it a gorgeous shot.

I'd say it was fortuitous that you had to wait Kevin - catching the start of the fall colors down below really makes the pictures pop! Beautiful shots.

Arguing on the internet is like having a competition to see who can hit a brick wall the hardest. You may win, but you're still an idiot.
