While gathering images for the Santa Rosa Air Museum at their air show in August 2020 I had the opportunity to gather in flight images of aircraft above the Santa Rosa countryside. I had never done this before and it was quite an experience and very interesting.

For this image the three aircraft were farther out from my aircraft than I wanted so I asked my pilot if he would ask the pilots to close formation. My pilot then radioed the three other pilots and they closed formation and I gathered this image. I just found this image of the three planes recently and thought I would share it with you.
