First "Official" Meeting of the Dunwoody Flying Club


So I figured if I was going to go through the trouble of hauling out the Easy Up tent and two chairs, then I might as well give a name to our rag-tag group of renegade flyers. The first official DFC meeting took place today. A brief sum up of the meeting notes confirm a bunch of crap talking about flying skills opened the meeting, followed by general blabbing about wives, girlfriends, and how hot it was even under the tent. Casualties for the day were a blown out ducted fan, a nose over on landing, and two broken props due to low level hovering trials.
I had a great time, hope more people will show up as they see how much fun we're having/ See you guys next time. Meeting adjourned! :0)

... that was me! I hope the shots will get better with a little practice

It really does take a steady hand a and a quick shutter finger to get the same quality shots that Matt takes.

It is very impressive the way you are able to keep the aircraft in the frame!
Keep the pics coming

Very nice shots, Matt. Especially the one of the Stearman (15.jpg). My monitor almost cracked from the extreme sharp focus on that shot! Very impressive.

Whose Stearman is it? I got some nice shots in my review of that plane thanks to my brother and Napo. Here's a link:
