All over the US - Summer 2009


I spent June 8 to Aug 16 traveling all over the US for business and vacation. My car racked up 12,140 miles in that time. First, I spent three weeks in Huntsville, AL running flight test on the Shadow 200 UAV, then I spent 4 weeks at Ft Huachuca, AZ doing the same. My wife and son flew out to Arizona when I finished, and we then started on a 3 week vacation. I completed a flying wing aerial photo plane the day before I left, knowing my old aerial photo plane would not survive some of the places I planned to fly. So here are the flights, and some photos from each. The originals are all 5 MP, using an HP 417 digital camera that I bought at Walmart several years ago for $88.
