Air-to-Air Photos of a TBM 700

Last month, I flew my Beechcraft A36 as the photo ship for a series of air-to-air pictures of a TBM 700. We flew out of Boeing Field (KBFI) in Seattle and then near Mt. Rainier as the sun set. Jessica Ambats, an experienced and highly regarded photographer, took the photos of the single-engine turboprop. The owner of the TBM 700 was in the left seat, but the close formation flying was done by a former USAF Thunderbird pilot, who was in the right-front seat.

To get such spectacular photos, we thoroughly briefed the flight before takeoff to ensure that we all understood the intended route, communications procedures, and coordination between the two aircraft.

    Good set of photos there, and you were very lucky with the sunset as well. Not easy to get air2air, but these came out well.

  2. Enjoyed the pictures. Thanks for showing them. My favorites are the first pic with Seattle in the background and Mt.Rainer above the TBM. Looking forward to photos from your next photo missions.
