Picture of the Week: AVweb's Flying Photography Showcase
Past, Meet the Future ...
Taken on July 30, 2009 with a Canon SD700 IS, f/2.8, 1/125s. This is a photo of one of my twin daughters sitting in my then newly purchased Pietenpol Aircamper at Airventure 2009. This is the same Aircamper that entered the Airventure Race after being flown from San Luis Obispo to Dayton, then to OSH.
