Default Pics of the 37 ship RV formation (from the air, pre AirVenture)

All,
I had the opportunity to help out with the 37 ship RV formation. It was an experience that I will never forget for the rest of my life. I met a lot of nice people and families. By the time I left SQI with all of them to OSH I had many friends. My picture link has pictures of my OSH trip. Many of them are of the time in SQI. I hope you enjoy the very different view of the formation. I will keep adding pics to my file. Please remember that depending on the angle where I was in relation to the formation, may cause optical illusions.

Absolutely great pictures! I loved the high speed pics of the joining of the two smaller groups. Thanks for doing this.

Leaving for OSH tomorrow.

Default turns?

Thirty seven aircraft in formation, truly impressive! Turns, while in formation, must be...interesting.

Hi Axel, Couldn't help but notice the really nice rear view mirrors in your cockpit. Was wondering where you got them? Have tried Autozone and other car places, but all they have is something about 30% smaller & not very good reflective capabilitys.

Let me give you my Email, because I don't know how I would find you again if you answer. donaziza@bellsouth.net

Many Thanks.
