I would like to announce Octobers Spotlight Photographer has been selected. Peter Van Dyke has been selected for the month of October.  Peter has been a member of PHX Spotters since March 2011.

Coolidge Fly-In October 11

Well, this last Saturday was the first fly-in of the season. Even with the threat of bad weather, heat haze and low attendance I made the 3 hour drive just to see how it was. Yes, there was less traffic than usual, but still quite a few planes that weren’t there before, including a nice looking Cessna 310R that I had seen two weeks before in Sedona. Also, fellow spotter Kyle Boyd flew a C172 from Deer Valley.

And it seems like N138FF, the Hercules that sat outside the IAR hangar seems to be slowly being brought back to airworthiness, as the wings are now sitting next to the plane.

Now, I do have to say, it did get pretty hot that day, mid 90s or so, but that didn’t ruin the photos.

In the next couple months, the Valley of the Sun temperatures will be slowing coming down. And when the temperatures come down it make s for some outstanding Aviation Photography. The next couple weeks will be the start of my spotting season. We look forward to seeing all of the Aviation Spotters at our local airports. If you see someone with a camera don’t be afraid to walk up to us and say hello. It is a great to be out at the airport taking pictures, but its better when you have great company.
