Artwork for the Jackson Model Rocketry Club
In 2006, the Jackson Model Rocketry Club commissioned me to create a high resolution Saturn 5 illustration for their organization. Here are some images of the finished artwork on the clubs trailer.
These photos were taken on August 10, 2006 at an aviation event in Mason, Michigan.
For more information about the club, visit the Jackson Model Rocketry Club website.
The artwork was printed by JP SIGNS and GRAPHICS.
My Ride in a Texan
In the summer of 1998, I went for a ride in a T-6 Texan. The 30-minute flight was purchased from North American Top Gun. During the flight, I was able to fly several maneuvers, including chandelles, aileron rolls, and loops.
The package included a video of the flight. Most of the images below are screencaps from that video. The Texan flight was a great experience. I can recommend it to others.
