Default Photo Shoot Pics

Here are some shots from our photo shoot yesterday. We had a 4-ship yesterday led by Jon Abarr in his gorgeous RV-7. Unfortunately I donít have a picture of it. The purpose of the photo shoot was to get a shot of the father/son team. I hope they post their pics soon! Photos were taken by Cayla, an 18 year-old soon to be private pilot flying with Jon. Her check ride will be this week sometime. Good luck Cayla! Enjoy.

#1 Jon Abarr RV-7
#2 Max Maiden RV-8 son
#3 Robin Maiden RV-8 father
#4 Jerry Esquenazi RV-8



I canít seem to stay upright very long.


A Top Gun shot.

Here are some pics of the father/son duo Robin and Max Maiden. The interesting thing about son Max (Robin's son) is that he is the proverbial airport kid. For as long as I have known them, Max hung around the airport as much as he could. Nearly every day, he would show up to help clean, polish, and turn a wrench hoping to score a ride in an airplane. Now 21 years old has flown more than 50 aircraft types, has a couple of thousand hours, and earns a living doing any odd and unique flying job from banner towing, giving Waco rides, ferrying airplanes across the country, crewing on a DC-3, etc. He hopes to land a fire bomber job out west soon.

I'm sure I'm not the only person who is thinking how every formation flight is a "Maiden Flight" for them. Great story!

Nice paint scheme, one I have selected for mine

Looks like Peter Fruelings 7, but it isn't as Peter had the SJ cowl.

That was my inspiration. I changed it up a bit with different wing treatment and subdued checkerboards.
