The aerial photo above shows the dam and spillway with the floodgate open. This was planned specifically for the aerial photograph seen here. While flying the airplane I contacted the controllers of the floodgate to let them know I was getting close and to open them for the photo shoot.
It worked as planned and the Army Corps of Engineers got the photo they were looking for. They wanted it for their promotional brochures of the lake region.
