Vlad! Thanks for taking someone up to get these shots of me and my uncles boat before you left! I will have one of these framed hanging on the wall in my office!

I cropped the shot, so if you open up the thumbnail its quite possible that you can copy it and do something with it. When you enlarge the photo it may be a fuzzy though unless you have a high resolution one to do a large print.

I was at least 500' from any person or property per FARs.

Vlad,

You were flying so low we were above you in our boat! Jeffrey had a great ride with you and talked about it all the way back to Hickory, NC.

He was upset that you didn't do a barrel roll though.........

Luke,

Jeff is excellent flyer, he took controls of the plane after we got some altitude and in couple minutes was flying with fingers. He brought us to your location then I took over. It was very exciting to see your boat.

Next year I arrive painted and Jeff will be flying again.

Wow, if he's flying with just his fingers, he is REALLY good. I have to use both arms when I fly and I sure do get tired!!

I just couldn't resist. Great photos!
Isn't it amazing!! The person that never has the fortitude to pursue his own dreams, will be the first to try and discourage you from pursuing yours.

The aerial machine will be painted by next gathering. We need to get boats out of that gorge to open water for some nice shots. DaveLott knows where to go Gale drove Midnight Cry there :D .
