Formation

As some of you might have seen through status updates/tweets, this past weekend the wife and myself took our boys up to a local air show for the first time.  There were quite a few planes that flew in for the event so already Ethan was as excited as he could be.  A little later into the day, there was a group of acrobatic pilots called Team Vortex that put on an air show, and let me tell you, it was pretty cool.  These guys were doing things with planes that I thought would never be possible.  One of the guys flew straight up in the air and then spun like a top while falling back down to the ground with his prop still pointing towards the sky.  Another pilot shut his engine off mid air and then started it back up again on the free fall.  All in all, it was a pretty cool show.

Oh, and this shot is not a distance  illusion, these planes were actually that close together, flying side by side.

  3. Nice capture. I like how you can even read the website just behind the pilot on the bottom. People that can do this are crazy skilled!

  4. It is amazing what they can do. The Blue Angels do stuff that defies logic, gravity, and common sense.

  5. Great catch Scott! There’s a guy locally that owns 2 bi-planes and he does some of the wildest things I’ve ever seen. Crazy!
