On August 26, the first official mission of the new HD aircraft was to photograph the old Ogilvie school building. The Ogilvie school burned on March 15, 2009. I went to school here from kindergarten to early second grade before moving to St. Cloud. My father and grandmother graduated from this school.
These are images of the three car collision that occured at Hwy 10 and East St. Germain Street in St.Cloud just before 10pm on Saturday evening. Fortunately, no serious injuries were reported. Read more about it at WJON.Com
This is an image taken a few months ago during a test flight for an aircraft that was built to capture an aerial shot for a Hollywood movie. Unfortunately there were complications with the plane that prevented it from going airborn on location in Vancouver, BC last April. A new design had a very successful test flight 2 days ago. The image quality using the HD cam is a giant leap forward.
It’s going to be very hot today, so here’s a cool look back. This photograph was taken in March, 09. It was a cold day with a steady breeze blowing in from the North. That was actually perfect since the frozen river was my runway. It was my last and best opportunity to get an aerial shot of the bridge construction at this stage. The weather did not hold up, and only weeks later this area was open water.
