Max Conrad the Composer

7 posts in this topic

I'm just starting to learn the ins and outs of video editing and YouTubing.  It's terribly time consuming but it is a great way to enjoy your flights well after you've landed.

Here is a short one I made for practice.  It is set to a song written by the famed aviator Max Conrad.  My home base of Winona,MN was also his hometown, the airport was named after him in 1960.  What most don't know about him was that he was also a Musician/Composer. Most of his music was aviation themed, so I thought it fitting to use it in this short video.  These are the same hills and farm land that used to be flying over 80+ years ago. 

 

Cheers,

Dan

Thanks,  I"m a CFI and Centerline disobedience is a pet peeve of mine.  Video editing is nice though, only have to show the world the good ones.:)  

The valley fog is very common here in the summer. It's gorgeous but often has you sitting on ground all morning.  

Cheers,

Dan

Beautiful scenery! Interesting landscape with the wide valleys, bluffs and flat hill tops, or are those buttes like in Montana?

We call them Bluffs around here.  The flat tops are a result of an eroded plateau that this Mississippi runs right down the center off.  All the valleys are channeling runoff that ends up in the Mississippi.
