    Acro at Williams, Just another California Day.

    Sorry about the sound. Bad memory card in my camera.

    Regarding my comment about the tow pilot...I said it with a smile on my face. To be fair, on the next tow he dropped me in the center of the acro box.

    Enjoy.

    Well done Guy.
    Very skillful.
    Thanks for making that video - I thoroughly enjoyed it.
    Perfect day for making that video.

    I'm guessing I would need both computers running at the same time to watch two videos done at the same time - one camera facing aft, as that one was, and a second camera facing forward on the same flight.

    That would be entertaining to watch over and over - running a loop - having both video projected and running, side by side on the big wall screen in the hangar - during one of our evening banquets.

    Doing flying videos is turning out to be quite a complex activity. I have lots of video from many different perspectives. The editing is turning out to be the rate limiting step. I have been a Windows Guy for years but I followed Pete's advice and walked into an Apple store a couple weeks ago to look at their video editing software. Looks like Santa is getting me a Mac for Christmas and then I can start putting the videos together in a truely exciting way.

    You know, my wife may be right that my hobbies cost much more than our house!

    Good choice! Mallory and Guy have said they'll do another Acrofest (#3). This last one was a HUGE amount of fun.
