I've compiled my shots into a single video montage.... but in looking at shots from others and from Haligonia.ca (https://www.facebook.com/haligonia), these are quickly out-done!!!!

Happy Canada Day!!!

Pretty cool... Skyhawks parachuters, from their perspective, jumping yesterday from the C-130 Hercules and landing on the Commons - what a crowd!

Brian


I think the announcer/PR officer said 6000ft for the jumpers...the first pass on which they dropped the streamers was at 2500ft.

Some very positive information here that I am thrilled to share - especially with our volunteers!!!

Email from me to HRM on July 1:
Michael,

On behalf of HEFA, I wanted to thank you for the opportunity to participate in the Canada Day festivities at the Halifax Common.

I hope that the event – and especially our aspect – was generally well received. In particular, I hope that the flying demonstration was met with some enthusiasm and without any identified issues. As discussed, we were keeping the planes small and in a fairly tight circuit – well away from people. Safety first!

Thank you again,

Brian Gray



Email response from HRM today:
Brian,

This was an incredible partnership for us. I’m so pleased with how things went. Absolutely no issues, and it kept our crowd looking to the skies! I bet a lot of new people were exposed to the hobby / sport of electric flying.

Thanks,

MK


Thanks yet again to our volunteers and to Cato (MAAC) and James (Moncton) for making this such a success! Positive PR is a wonderful thing!

Brian
