SFRCF Fly-in at Hunter Farms on May 29, 2016

On May 29, 2016, the Sanderson Field RC Flyers (SFRCF) held a fly-in at Hunter Farms, the club's grass field. Although the clouds looked threatening, and the wind was gusty at times, the participating pilots were able to fly throughout the day—and enjoyed morning coffee and doughnuts and, later, a great potluck, too.

Attending the fly-in was Chase Salisbury. Chase is the 2016 recipient of the SFRC scholarship. Chase was able to fly one of the RC planes at the field.

A treat of the day was watching the large-scale Nieuport 28 flown by Paul Fleming.

The gallery images are 1000px wide and are, therefore, best viewed on a monitor, although they can also be viewed on smaller, mobile devices.

I hope you enjoy the gallery images as much as I enjoyed capturing them.

About the Images

The images were taken with a Canon Rebel T3i. I used Canon 60mm and 100mm macro lenses for the images. For the images of the planes in the air or on the flight line, I set the camera to shoot at a shutter speed of 1/800. All images received simple processing in Photoshop and were saved as low-resolution JPEG images that were optimized for the Web. See "A New Photographic System for an Old Photographer" for more information about my (now somewhat dated) photographic system.
