The Screaming Beech

After the Aeroshell Team was the Beech. Now just at first glance, this is one beautiful aircraft but it sure can so some impressive stunts. When he first took off he flew low along the ground letting out lots of smoke which almost engulfed us. He quickly pulled up in a sharp incline and came right around on top of himself. He was doing stunts that i have only seen in modified Pitts biplanes. It was entirely not expected.

He flew all over the sky, from one end of the field to another. He left a great trail of smoke. Following these performers gets ever more challenging with the ability of the pilots. Panning is normally easy when it’s straight across from left to right but when it’s up over, circles and rolls it starts to become more challenging. Normally Dad and I would just go find some gulls down at Mono Lake to pan with but they don’t really do circles.

It was on impressive plane and pilot, shooting it was truly fun. I can’t wait to see what else might come along.
