AeroDynamic Aviation, Reid Hillview Airport, San Jose, Thursday, October 26

The Aero Dynamic Aviation flying school was once owned by the husband of SCVWS member Marion Podolski. He has since retired, yet we are very grateful that the staff have continued to let us paint at their facility. The site had all the elements of a great plein air challenge: comfortable spots to set up (temps were in the 80s but there was plenty of shade to share) and subject matter that obligingly stayed put, except for the odd plane that went for a quick spin.

Marilyn found a shady place to set up and get a great view of  a SportStar.
Thanks to the AeroDynamic Aviation staff for telling us that this
plane was not scheduled to fly on our paintsite day.
