    I'm finalizing my plans to be in the Sedona area November 8 - 13 or so. I may extend that some depending on how things go. I'm planning on staying in Cottonwood to save a few bucks, but will probably do most of the photos around Sedona.

    I'm going out there to shoot a friend's planes, a Monocoupe and a Cessna 195 and whatever else he can drum up. Also planning to shoot @SoCal RV Flyer's plane. A few others have mentioned wanting photos as well. If you're interested, reply here, PM me, or shoot me an email at jackfleetwood@yahoo.com.

    I'm offering a $600 rate to POAers or anyone you refer for this trip. Hoping I'll break even! Looking forward to the trip and hopefully meeting a lot of new friends. If you're not happy with the photos, I won't charge you, it's as simple as that.

    Also, if you just want to come hang out and see how it works, let me know. I can probably throw someone in the plane with me and let you see things from my perspective. The goal for me is to get away from my day job for a few days, relax, and get some awesome pics.

    Don't get caught up in one of those Vortexes. I'm told it's a thing.

    I've always adhered to the notion that belly cleaning was more of a personal thing.

    Looking forward to it, Jack! The Monocoupe and 195 are a couple of my favorite planes, so it'll be a bonus to see them there, if our schedules overlap.

    If you’ve ever wanted a photo of your plane and live anywhere near Sedona now is the time. You’ll never have a better choice than Jack at getting photos you’ll love and that will make sure your plane looks great.

    Jack is a true artist and is a great person to fly with.

    I’m interested and may make a day trip out of it depending on weather. If I can’t make it out there is there a cancellation fee?

    No, you pay me there. I’ve been a pilot for a long time, I understand weather getting in the way!

    I'm trying to get everything nailed down and get everyone on the calendar. I understand things move around so this is not set in stone yet.

    Making sure I don't miss anyone out there who has mentioned wanting photos. I would feel terrible if I left someone off!
    @retpd2001, I had you on my list of people who wanted to know when I was out that way.

    I've attached my calendar for now and I can move people around as needed. Don't panic if you're not on the right day!

    I can’t wait to see the air-to-air with the Sedona area in the background. The photos will be spectacular.

    If you can get me another plane to shoot, I can probably work something out to catch you on our way back to Texas. It would probably be Tuesday or Wednesday, depending on how long we stay in Sedona though.

    I was just up near Flagstaff. Sunday was fun with 93mph winds (gusts) around Winslow/Meteor Crater.

    I'd love to meet up and see your set-up! Maybe even go up with you if you have an open slot. I live in Sedona and can meet up at Sedona airport or Cottonwood. If my guest room wasn't full, I'd offer you a place to stay :(

    10-day forecast looks good...should be fun!! I'm flying up early Saturday morning to Cottonwood; maybe we can meet up for lunch during that harsh mid-day light. :)

    The good thing is mid-day isn't very long! Sun sets at 5:30 or so. Going to be a blast.

    I am so ready for this! We've had four power outages in October, the last one ending last night at 7:00. It lasted 96 hours. Fortunately, we weren't in a mandatory evacuation zone. Camping out in your home eating canned Dinty Moore beef stew every night for four days isn't my idea of having fun. :frown:

    I plan to arrive Sunday and will be staying at the Sky Ranch Lodge a short walk from SEZ.

    EDIT - After checking hotel prices, I switched my reservation to the Lux Verde Hotel in Cottonwood; it's less than half the price of Sky Ranch Lodge. No brainer.

    We're all set for this - looking forward to an early morning Landing in Sedona and see where we fit in the days' schedule.
