I have about 45 minutes of video of my plane shot from Andy’s plane. It needs to be edited down because it is over 2 gigabytes. I have some stills also which I need to sort through.

I would like to say I don’t know much about formation flying. Andy did the hard stuff because he was the wing man. I just had to (try) to fly rock solid. Andy’s skill was quite apparent during the 40 minutes which included a formation take off and “Initial” approach over the airport (KIWA).
