FLYING HIGH AGAIN!

You may remember Chuck Yeager as the first man to break the sound barrier on October 14, 1947 in the experimental, rocket-powered Bell X-1 aircraft. Recently, Brig. Gen. Chuck Yeager, USAF (ret.) and Maj. Gen. Joe Engle treated nearly a quarter of a million fans to another breaking of the sound barrier at the Edwards Air Show in Southern California—this time, in a Lockheed Martin F-16 Fighting Falcon. JBD was hired to help document this momentous occasion and provide broadcast-quality video of the event. "We were with the General throughout the day", said Johnny Brackett, Creative Director. "I was there for flight briefing and flight ops. We "dollied" down the runway to capture the event and were with him as he disembarked from his aircraft to greet his fans." After his flight, General Yeager spent the remainder of the show meeting and greeting his fans and inspiring service members of all ranks. "This was definitely a highlight of my career", Brackett added. "These events remind us of the sacrifices made every day by our armed forces and that yes, there are still 'real celebrities and role models' out there."
