Flying pictures

The past couple of weeks has been a little crazy. It is always a little difficult to get back in the swing of things after a long break. I finished my night systems training course on Monday (14th) and will be starting my next phase of academics on Tuesday to prepare me for the mission I will be flying in Japan. Sarah took the day off school on Wednesday for outprocessing meetings that need to be completed for us to get our orders to leave. After that I had a couple of days to hang out back in the old B-course squadron. I "sandbagged" two flights (ride in the back seat of a two-seat model), an Air Combat Maneuvering mission on Thursday, and a Transition flight on Friday. I was able to take my camera along with me to take some photos. Taking photos in flight proved to be much more of a challenge than I had originally expected, but it was still a lot of fun. I've also created a script that adds our photography logo and a border to the pictures. I think it makes them look more professional and adds a visual element that is stunning. Enjoy!
