August Pittsburgh Aerials

Recommended Posts

I attempted a flight over Pittsburgh last May with somewhat disappointing results. It was too hazy and the pilot only flew around the city once, and I was on the wrong side. I got another chance on the 14th under slightly better visibilty conditions, but was able to circle downtown 4 or 5 times (what I wanted to do last time). Most of the images I had to correct for contrast (due to the haze) so some quality was compromised.

Those are great! Thanks for posting them, I just love aerials. I thought downtown areas were restricted still?
