Thank you Phil Whitman

Last night, Phil delivered a very interesting presentation on aerial photography. He covered the early history which involved pigeons, kites balloons and planes to the present day drones. The presentation sparked a lot of interest and discussion and ended with a video on the very recent Avalon Air Show. Phil also showed some of his aerial and drone images.

It was a great night, which was enjoyed by everyone. Thank you Phil.
