Powered Parachute Flight to Lake Santee, Indiana – 9-23-2017

On Saturday morning, September 23, 2017 I took a very long morning flight from Shelbyville Municipal Airport to Lake Santee, Indiana and back. The Flight time was 2:15 and covered a total of 72 miles (see map below). I have friend who owns a house on the lake and happened to have his DJI Phantom drone and we coordinated for him to get some air-air video of my flight over the area. Starting around the 24:06 mark in the video, there is a split screen view that shows both my view and the drone view at the same time (within about a second or so…didn’t get it quite synchronized exactly). Of course along the entire way I was also shooting still photos and have included some here as well.

Upon closer inspection…I’m being watched!
