Pilot Maker Day, December 9, 2006
Air-to-Air with the CAF

I had the opportunity to fly with the morning formation. I was in the #3 aircraft of the formation, an SNJ-4 (N86WW) owned and flown by Chris Rushing. Flight lead was Jason Somes in his T-6D (N8540P). Aircraft formation #2 was Mark Russell in his T-34B (N341MR). Aircraft #4 was the CAF SNJ-5 flown by Terry Cedar. We rolled onto runway 26 for a formation takeoff and performed a number of formation manuevers in skies above Ventura, Oxnard and Camarillo. I want to thank all four of these guys for a great flight and fantastic opportunity to shoot these aircraft in their native environment, the sky! Thanks to Chris Rushing for giving me "an office" to work in. You guys are pros and made my job easy!
