LCC Presents Aviation

LCC
This is a public event, no charge, everyone is welcome.
We are in for a treat 7pm Wednesday November 25, 2015. Two speakers will be coming on the theme of aviation.
Mike Luedy of Yellow Drum Productions is an aviation photographer. As you can see from the photos below, he has an inside track on photographing the Snowbirds. A look at this website will show you that he photographs much more than that. He will talk about how he gets his shots, show many more pictures, and answer your questions.
 
Kirsten Brazier is the founder and organizer Girls Fly Too, the annual event that encourages girls to consider a career path in the aviation industry. Kirsten is a pilot herself who has created this amazing event because of her experiences in the industry which is dominated by 95% males. At the events, girls are able to take a free flight in an airplane or helicopter as well as interact with the many hands-on exhibits. This year’s event will be in Abbotsford on March 12 & 13.
 
Kirsten will be asking club members to consider volunteering their time as event photographers. It’s a worthy cause and a fantastic photo op.
