Steve and Bill were sharing ideas and design of camera mounts and their locations.  The cameras must be situated to accommodate aerodynamic flow requirements while capturing video data during our upcoming speed run tests. The cockpit canopy was removed to allow access and measurements for the design.

Long time team member Russ Garlow was at work on his Master's Degree thesis.  He has been involved on the project from early on and is putting his knowledge down on paper toward his educational requirements. It was a beautiful day weatherwise, with spring just around the corner.  Members took a break to watch a few pairs of bald eagles soaring high above the hangar, riding the thermals until nearly out of sight.
