Well, it seems that it is that time.

I am flying my first air show tomorrow in the next town. We are putting on a 9 minute display over the river for a local festival. Everything is running smoothly, so far.

We will have three in-plane cameras plus guys on the ground filming too. We'll have a cool video.

We are performing a "tactical" demonstration in a Piper Cherokee 140. Nothing aerobatic (of course) but our entire team is comprised of youth which makes it unique. It's a neat addition to the event we are flying at and they are as fired up about it as we are.

I can already see who this could work, and it brings a smile to my face.

We are flying another show this Friday.

We have on-ground video and some limited in the air footage. The GoPro camera we used was in full 1080p and I turned it on before I took off. Not a biggie but I did run the pattern a couple of times and do some high speeds down the runway while I waited to go over to the showsite. I was stupid to turn it on early and it filled up it's card before we got into the "box".

Will have that fixed for this Friday, though.

Airbourne,

We flew out of an airport/grass strip in the next town...and flew to the "other" next town to fly the display at a local festival. We are doing a high school football game this Friday so I'm very excited to showcase this in front of friends and schoolmates.

The most important thing I wish for your demo is SAFETY Scarecrow. WAYYYY to many airshow incidents now a days. :/

Be safe!
