Formation flying

This is my last post for this album.

During the sunset air to air flight I was in the hands of an extremely talented pilot: John Beattie. He’s one of those pilots that seems to fly every plane… I had the luck and joy to get a backseat in the Chipmunk with him at the controls. To give me the best circumstances they removed one of the sidewindows. During the flight he kept doing all kind of maneuvers above and around the formation of Piper Cubs and Sv-4. Making steep turns he gave me some different angles on the formation. He positioned himself under the formation at one point and this gave me the chance to photograph him at the controls with the formation above him.
I should actually do an interview with him as I believe he must have some great stories to tell. What do you think?
