How I spent my Saturday
For the last five years, since we moved to Encino, these guys come right overhead on right-turn departure from One-Six-Right over at VNY, which is about a 10 minute drive from my house. So I finally decided I ought to do a feature article on The Condor Squadron, the oldest warbird flying club in Southern California (founded 1962). When I said I was doing it for Aeroplane Magazine, they said "come on over!" So I did.
A perfect day in Southern California. Mid 80s, severe CAVU, and the sun was just right. These are a sample of the trip down Malibu Canyon, then along the coast over Malibu, out to Santa Barbara, then a return along the 101 back to the San Fernando Valley.
A great day and an automatic camera - all I did was compose and shoot. I think the Editor is going to like this article.
These are medium-resolution images. I'm not putting the hi-rez up to be stolen (not by any of you, but A2A photos are some of the most stolen on the internet).
