Default Eclipse 2017

Well I can't fly my Velocity yet so I reserved the trusty Arrow for Monday.
I'm planning on putting my GoPro on the wing tip and hopefully get some good shots.

I have heard that the shadow travels at around 1700 MPH.
Guess that's why you can't hear it coming.

Now THAT will be cool! How far south of Omaha will you be flying to get a good view? Maybe land at Beatrice or Brenner and watch!

Be sure to take your Eclipse Glasses with you just in case you want to look!

Here's the link to the YouTube Video

I had to dip the wing in order to get the sun/moon into the frame.
