📸@aerographs1. Today I think we'll feature only aircraft on the last day of my "Instagram Takeover." All will be personal favorites.
Jack Pelton, the CEO of the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA), was due to be in town for last December's meeting of the Atlanta Aero Club. Since the Christmas Season was upon us, my EAA chapter invited him to our hangar to participate in the holiday party that same evening.
Knowing he was coming, our chapter President, Randy Epstein, thought it would be nice to offer him something better than our usual EAA 690 coffee mug presented to guest speakers. A plan was hatched that involved the presentation of a print, and that's where I came in.
One of our members kindly offered to finance the whole affair, and two days before Thanksgiving we photographed this Stearman PT-17D, owned by a gentleman who lives just south of Atlanta late on a glorious November afternoon.
A big fan of the Stearman, Jack was most pleased, and I think the chapter made another good friend... #eaa #experimentalaircraftassociation #eaa690 #boeingstearman #mallardslanding #afternoonsky #famousbtsmag
