The OctobDSC 0705-5650er program was a preview screening of a short documentary, "Our Piece of the Sky", on the experiences of female pilots. Jessie Davidson, who just graduated from the Master of Visual Anthropology program at the University of Southern California, created this film and discussed her original ideas in making it, as well as the changes that ensued as her conceptions were changed by the experiences and feelings of the pilots she interviewed.  A thoughtful and well balanced film was the result.

 

IMG 1745-5602The Sedona fly-in the weekend of 10-12 October was a big success. About 32 people attended, with 9 airplanes including a chartered jet! Several people drove to take in the Southwest sights along the way. Activities included Jeep Rides, vortex chasing and experiencing, visiting Jerome and Prescott, seeing nearby ancient Native American sites, some hiking, and just relaxing and enjoying the magnificent canyon views. Happy hours were popular events. Saturday dinner was at the Mesa Grill at the airport and near the hotel. The flying weather was great both ways.

Thanks go to Dave Weir for arranging another fantastic fly-in.

 

septThe dinner meeting's presentation was by Mike McCaskill, who created "The Hope-ful Devil." Mike talked about his discovery of twelve minutes of raw footage of his father and crew's rescue after ditching their B-29. He then tracked down additional footage from all kinds of sources to create the 45 minute documentary he showed the DAFers. Many present commended it as the best DAF program in years. Contratulations to Mike on his tremendous work, and thanks to Larry Chapman for setting up the program.
