Its important to eat before… so I hear… I always have, so I can’t say it helps. But I can tell you 10 minutes of aerobatics is enough to cause me to break a sweat and long for fresh air and tera firma.
For the fourth time in my career, I took photos previewing Chicago’s Air and Water ShowÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â and for the third time I flew with the Lima Lima Flight Team. Their World War II era military trainers gave us quite a ride, pulling over 4 Gs.
To mix things up this year I decided to borrow my neighbors GoProHero2 video camera and test it out in addition to shooting still frames for my client, Reuters. After this test drive, I’m ready to throw down $299 for my own!
I first learned about the annual event in 2004 when I was sitting at my desk and the sonic booms surrounding my high rise apartment scared the hell out of me.
