Red Star Pilots Association
March Meet @ Flying W Airport
Lumberton, New Jersey
Friday March 20, 2009

IN THIS VIDEO, watch as I climb into the back seat of a Yak-52 for a formation flight over Central Jersey and Pennsylvania. We took off from Flying W's Runway 1 and proceeded north, as weather reports stated that better ceilings and visibility were north of us, rather than south. In fact, it did drizzle and flurry on us just prior to engine start. Take note of when I zoom in on the aircraft and note that the wingmen have FULL CONCENTRATION on a fixed point of lead's airplane. The Red Star Pilots Association held a small gathering at the Flying W Airport to help "scrape off the rust" with formation flying in preparation for the warmer weather, airshow season, and upcoming fly-ins later on in the year, to include a larger formation flyover at EAA Oshkosh this summer.

I would like to thank Tim Stevens for arranging this flight and for Reade Genzlinger for taking me up in his gorgeous Yak-52. Tim, as in the other flight video, is flying his gorgeous red Yak-52. Rob Mortara is flying the other CJ-6 you see in the video. Thank yous go out to ALL of the pilots in attendance that weekend that helped provide me with the opportunities to get video of CJ-6As and Yak-52s that I've always wanted to get - especially video featuring the growl of the Vedeneyev engines in the Yaks and the Zhouzhou engines in the CJ-6As.

Like what you've seen? Well, if you are interested in purchasing DVDs of specific aircraft and/or of airshows, interested in anything and everything related to airshows (where the jet teams will show up, all airshow performers, airshow reports from airshows I have attended, previews of airshows I will be attending, etc.), a much more easier to navigate "version" of all of my videos, and/or everything there is related to aviation - including spotting guides to my favorite airports and military bases and aircraft factfiles, please take time to check out Steve's Airshow World at http://www.stevesairshow.com .
