Tennessee, and the "Knoxville
Flyers" Flying Club has proven a great resource for DreamFleet
when it comes obtaining popular aircraft to photograph and fly.
It all started with a photo shoot for a forthcoming Cessna 152 project,
and ended later with not only our popular Cessna Cardinal, but a
lovely Cessna 310L, owned by club member and flight instructor Charles
Queen. N137CM is his personal aircraft, and is not owned by the
club, as the Cardinal is, but Charles instructs in all of the club's
with 325 hp turbocharged engines, this Cessna 310 can cruise at
over 240 knots / 270+ mph, with a service ceiling of over 30,000'.
Better get your oxygen mask on!
several days of photographing the 310 and the club's other aircraft
we had the opportunity to fly and photograph N137CM, "7 Charlie
departed in the club's Cessna 182 as the camera ship, with club
president, Jeff Dyer at the controls, and DreamFleet's Lou Betti
in the back seat with the camera. On board the 310 was Charles Queen
in the left seat, and Flight One's Tom main in the right.
to an hour was spent over the Tennessee mountains and valleys photographing
Charlie Mike, and several photos from the shoot appear below.
sincere thanks to Charles, Jeff, and all the fine folks at Knoxville
on each image for a larger version.
