IAC Chapter 61
This is a picture that I took over Macomb Illinois. Carlos was
flying his Pitts and we were in a Skybolt Aerobatics Aircraft.
I cut the picture of Carlos out of the picture over Macomb and then pasted it into the picture of the river.
I used Corel Photopaint do do the rest of the job and made the water splash up behind the wheels.
Then I took the plane and made a reflection of the plane in the water. At that time,
I didn't know how to make the reflection inverted, so I did the best that I could.
I saw this scene in a movie about the border patrol where they had an airplane
skimming the water. I was so impressed with the pilots skills that I actually had
this scene in my mind for a long time before I ever met Carlos., but this is what inspired me
to put Carlos skimming the water.
Carlos had a whole article written about him in Sport Aerobatics Magazine
a number of years ago.
The plane that you see is a Pitts S1S that Carlos built . He did a fantastic job building it and he put the
Puerto Rican Flag on the top of the upper wind.
