For those of you who might be waiting for the ISAP 2013 Symposium schedule:
Symposium field trip plans announced
Plans for the field trip during the ISAP XII Symposium in Seattle May 16, 17 and 18 are complete. The day will begin with a visit to Paine Field in Everett for a light breakfast and a group briefing/planning session for an air-to-air photo flight. For the first time at an ISAP symposium, members who wish to participate in the photo flight can do so, on a first-come, first-served basis. Six members can fly in Grumpy, the Historic Flight Foundation’s [LINK: http://historicflight.org/hf/] B-25D Mitchell, while John Sessions—the foundation’s founder—flies a P-51 Mustang as the subject airplane.
In addition, 12 members can enjoy the opportunity to take a flight in the museum’s DC-3—and one could photograph the B-25D Mitchell, from a North American T-6. The cost of these flight experiences are $575 and $350 for the B-25 (two passengers will ride in the forward part of the airplane, where there are no opening windows); the cost is $350 per person for a DC-3 flight; and the T-6 opportunity is $1,000. You must be a current ISAP member and attending the symposium in order to participate. Reservations are first-come, first-served and will be handled by ISAP email firstname.lastname@example.org and type “Friday flights” in the subject line); you will pay the museum directly. If there is sufficient interest we will schedule a second air-to-air mission.
Members who do not choose to go flying will be able to photograph the takeoffs and landings of these vintage aircraft from beside the runway. In addition, there will be an opportunity to visit the Museum of Flight Restoration Center,[LINK: http://www.museumofflight.org/restoration-center] also located on the field.
Later in the day, we will visit the Museum of Flight [LINK: http://www.museumofflight.org/visit] at Boeing Field. The independent, nonprofit museum is one of the largest air and space museums in the world; its collection includes more than 150 historically significant aircraft—as well as The Boeing Company’s original manufacturing facility. We anticipate being able to shoot after the museum’s normal hours, and with tripods if desired.
Pre-symposium field trip Wednesday, May 15
A pre-symposium field trip to Naval Air Station Whidbey Island
[LINK: http://www.cnic.navy.mil/whidbey/index.htm] is being offered on Wednesday, May 15. Participants will tour a P-3 Orion unit and the air traffic control tower, and will have lunch on the base. Because of the federal government’s current sequester, this trip is limited to 20 members. The charge for this field trip will be $60 per person. You must be a current ISAP member and attending the symposium in order to participate; arrive at the hotel Tuesday (a few rooms are still available at the discounted rate of $99 plus tax) because departure will be early Wednesday morning. To reserve a seat, email email@example.com and type “Pre-symposium trip” in the subject line.
Plans for the field trip during the ISAP XII Symposium in Seattle May 16, 17 and 18—as well as an optional pre-symposium trip—have been announced. For the first time at an ISAP symposium, members who wish to participate in an air-to-air photo flight can do so, on a first-come, first-served basis. See the complete details on the ISAP website.
