I went on a flight to the Montana back country this week to do some air to air video with a couple other aircraft.  One was another Husky and the photo plane was a Cessna 185.   I flew the red Husky with another pilot that had no flight time in a Husky.  I acted as the safety pilot for the photo shoot.  My photos this week are from the three days I spent there during the trip.

Candid

This candid shot was a discussion of what to film and how.  We are on a back country strip in Montana called Meadow Creek.

Toys

Some people would consider these aircraft as toys.  They do great work but can still be a toy to have fun with.

Any of the Five Senses

On the way home yesterday this is the sight near Rexburg, ID.  Love the contrasting colors and the storm in the background.

Batteries

The end of the first day. If this does not recharge your batteries nothing will.  Calm evening after a long flight and watching a friend flying a float equipped Piper cub (PA 12) on and off the water at sunset for more video.

Half

On the way to the airport after half of the photo shoot.  This Cessna is the photo plane with the door off and the photographer sitting in the door filming. (He is strapped into the plane).  We flew in close formation for over 8 hours this day.  It is hard and very exacting work flying that close to another aircraft to get the GREAT shots.  Hard day, I took this in a relaxed formation.

  1. Looks like a great trip! Love all your shots of planes.

  2. wow! I hope the pilot of the other plane was a good friend!?? otherwise they might have thought you were flying too close. Did you take your hands off the steering wheel ( I googled it & found they are called a yoke). Nice pics.

  3. These are so great, Mark! Love toy and battery – stunning!

  4. I love the 5 senses shot. That is the exact reason I love the window seat on planes.

  5. That ‘battery’ shot is divine. Well done on each of these Mark.

  6. Beautiful set. I would love to be in montana! Love the five senses. Truly spectacular! Have a safe week with all of your toys!

  7. This might be your best set ever, Mark! Just gorgeous, every one. Really love the candid and batteries shots. Thanks for stopping by, always look forward to your visit.

  8. Wow what awesome shots.
    Candid – Oh the colors of this shot are just fabulous.
    Batteries – Totally amazing
    5 Senses – What a stunning view.
    Looks like this was a wonderful trip even if it was a working one. I’ve never been up in a small plane like that. Although I’m a bit scared of flying in larger planes I doubt I would do well in a small plane.

  9. These are great! I love the plane with the sunset in the background. Beautiful!
