My AP made the local forecast today on the news


Here's a short video of the local weatherman using one of my AP shots on his segment of the news. I've had a couple of others used a couple of weeks ago but wasn't home to record it. Anyways, here's the link.

Actually this isn't the first time they've used my AP for the weather. The first time Mr Bracciano used one of my photos, he asked his coanchor if she could guess what platform took them. Then he went on to explain that I do RC AP and that the photos were from one of my planes. From time to time since then I have sent in photos, with this being one of the latest ones. So far I think he's used three of mine.
Anyways, it is kind of a hoot to see my shots on the news.

NICE!

Must be a real rush to have your name mentioned and printed on the screen.

That is so cool! Congrats! And a very nice picture too!

When I first read the post, I thought you were going to have you picture in the background and they weren't going to mention, just use it as a backdrop. Ah, no! The was about as prominent as you can get!

Here's another video using a photo I took last January. In the town I used to live in there was a fire just down the road at a fertilizer plant. I managed to get the Easy Star airborne and got some pretty good photos of the aftermath of the fire.

Here's one more that made the paper. It was a Habitat for Humanity home that was built in front of my old house. This one made the local newspaper.
