GREG GILBERT / THE SEATTLE TIMES
In 2005, a representative from Team Oracle aerobatic team called the
Seattle Times, wanting to know if there was a photographer who would be interested in flying over downtown Seattle skyline to photograph their plane and two two Blue Angel jets flying over the city skyline. Another Times
photographer was first asked, but he said he had kids at home and didn’t want to fly
in a chase plane. He suggested me and I grabbed it at the chance!
I flew in the Oracle chase plane, piloted by Brian Norris, as Oracle aerobatic pilot Sean D. Tucker flew with Blue Angel planes #5 and #6. It took a lot of coordination, but the photo
turned out as the two Blue Angels and Tucker flew by the Space Needle.
