Photos from a Formation Flight

For the first time in many months, I participated in a four-ship formation flight earlier this week. A gallery of photos is here. The high-quality photos are by Pat DuLaney, wife of the primary lead (we switched leads, as briefed, halfway through the flight so that I could practice flying both as #4 and later as #2). Some of the pictures are still captured from video that I shot during the flight.

All of the other airplanes are RVs; I’m in my Extra 300L.

I’m flying as #2 behind lead in close trail formation.
