1992 Detroit Fly Over

 

The icy Straits of Detroit between Canada and the US stretch before us in March 1992. Below lies Lake St. Clair, to the right, Grosse Pointe, next Belle Isle parts the straits and beyond the skyline of Detroit - Windsor emerges in the background.

Inspired by the great aerial pictures posted on the DetroitYES Discuss Detroit Forums especially by forum members MikeM, MtHouston and others,  I present this webisode "1992 Detroit Fly Over".

In March 1992 I hired a plane and pilot at City Airport in Detroit.  My objective was to get some inspiration for a grand painting of the Straits of Detroit, an iconic geographic depiction of the great international metropolis of Detroit.

For $100, my wife, five year old son and I rode aboard a small four-seat aircraft piloted by a young but capable pilot.  We headed south toward Lake St. Clair, then turned right and headed down the Straits.  Fasten your safety belts and fly back in time with us over Detroit.
