Formation flying - b2osh training

Yesterday I did the Bonanza's to Oshkosh formation clinic.  I was a little bit nervous flying so close to other airplanes, but it was a blast.  Here is a video I snapped.

We had a 90 minute safety briefing in the morning, and then flew two "sorties", one in the morning and then a break for lunch and another flight in the afternoon.  The morning flight was just two planes, both of us Baron's although the other plane was a 58TC.  The afternoon flight we paired up with a E33 in a 3 ship formation.  Total blast once I got the hang of all the throttle jockeying.  The 55 Baron is so light and maneuverable I didn't have much trouble pairing with the single engine 35 at all.  Good fun!

  1. Formation is the most fun you can have flying other than Aerobatics ... The BOSH guys are a great group to form up with ... after > 1200 formation hours, I'll tell you that it's always a hoot
