Next updates will be about an amazing flight I did in 2009. As member of the Aviation Photocrew I went to Sanicole Airshow to make some photographs for their photobook. After a short but great air to air shoot with the Gripen another flight was briefed. The plan was to get airborne with the T-6 flown by Hanno Wesdorp with a photographer in the backseat. The Dutch Demo F-16 would join us together with the red Yak with Jerome Van Der Schaar at the controls. Back then the Demopilot was “Sheik” and it was planned that his dad would get the backseat in the Yak. To my surprise Eric gave the opportunity to me! A little nervous I strapped myself in the Texan and we took off for what has become one of the nicest flights I’ve done.
First pictures in this serie is the Yak-52 just before take-off.
