Yesterday was the day once again for an annual aerial photo flight at Kona. I’ve gone up every year between Christmas and New Year’s since 2004. In the beginning these flights were only done at Kona to capture the crowded conditions we see on the ramps during the holiday break. Eventually a separate annual flight was scheduled at the Hilo airport too and the photo library became a useful tool for recording conditions and changes over the prior 12 months at both airports. We also learned how to leverage the pictures for reports or whenever a case had to be made for project needs. Images really do trump words every time.
