Testing Experimental Aircraft over Coachella

In the summer of 2015 we had just finished a new frame design and I was eager to try it out…but I had a gig!  So, with the help of the crew we tested it out backstage and sent it out over the audience.  This falls under the category of things I knew I could get away with in 2015 but would soon be very illegal.

Soldier Field and the Chicago Skyline

I did a few laps around the field during setup and realized how visible the skyline was at the top…so this was a quick run from the stage to above the stadium and back.  Later I did a track from the smithsonian to backstage so I could link it all into one big video but I haven’t had time to edit.
