Rick Utermoehlen, Grass Valley, California

It has been a long time since I had a Beechcraft on the cover of ABS Magazine. Back in December 1994, my V35B over the Golden Gate was a pretty awesome sight. I wanted to have something special to compare to that photo, so Lake Tahoe in Northern California/Nevada after a winter snow seemed a good choice for the Baron I now own. What do you think? The shots required pretty close formation work for several miles. My friend Tim O’Brien took the pictures over Emerald Bay while Keith Thomassen flew the camera ship, his Cessna 210.
