To all Aeronca Sedan pilots attending this year's NAA convention at Middletown, June 19-22, would you be interested in coordinating and participating in a formation flight above Hook field?

When my wife agreed on another trip to Middletown, this idea just popped up: Making a nice video of such a rare formation, filmed from the ground, from the leading and from the rearmost plane. Maybe Saturday, June 21, after Bill Pancake's Aeronca Forum and before the evening banquet could work.

I am volunteering to coordinate well in advance and on the day itself with the Hook field ATC and to organize three cameras. Maybe pilots who own GoPro cameras or similar products could use those, too, and contribute their video sequences that Monika and I would then assemble into one single video.

What do you think? And members of the board, would this interfere with the convention schedule? Is there maybe a better time for this?

Let me know your honest opinions….

Matt

Matt,

Would love to and lets look at adding another level to the video. How about doing some formation flight with Mike Hammond & Craig MacVeigh in their C-3's with the Sedans, then the Sedans by themselves?

Or maybe even one of each Aeronca type present at the convention? Wouldn't that be neat?! :D

Joe

I have now posted in the NAA section of the Bulletin Board, too, addressing all convention attendees, not only the Sedan owners.
