    A co-worker of mine is a pilot and has a small plane. He was talking about flying when I jokingly said he should take me up to do some photography. He was actually excited because he has new glass in the plane and he asked when I want to do it.

    Well, now that I have the opportunity what do I look for? What equipment should I have ready? Is there a certain technique? Any tips or suggestions are welcome. We'll be flying over central Indiana.

    I have a Nikon D50, D90, and my lenses are: 28-200 nikon, 17-50/2.8 promaster, 28-105/2.8 tamron, and a 200-400 promaster.

    Thanks in advance.

    what's the objective..to take obliques of the ground below, shoot air/ground to infinity, document the pilot/aviation aspect?
    don't forget your sunglasses.

    A little bit of everything really. I've only been in the air one time and It was on a 747...so I'd like to make it personal plus document some familiar landmarks. Once specific thing I'd like to shoot is where I work since I just helped with an 80,000sq ft addition.

    Mapping the structure of a couple of lakes could come in handy too:)
