Default 17 ship formation including 4 RVs

This month's calendar photo showed three RVs in a formation flight. It was from a formation flight of 17 mixed airplanes. The flight was to give an honored guest a ride in a formation. British Air Marshall Sir and Lady Ian MacFadyen are friends of a few residents in the Spruce Creek. When Sir Ian requested to fly with us we were happy to do it. 17 airplanes showed up, so we briefed and walked on the ground before flying. Sir Ian flew with #17 Goofy and Lady Sally flew with #16 Stu. Here is a video of the event.

The flight was planned for Friday evening, but it was postponed due to the Goodyear Blimp (airship) visit. Here is the interesting visit of the blimp.
