    This iReport is part of an assignment:
    Bonnaroo music festival

    Aerial Photography - Bonnaroo 2009


    Crashed Bonnaroo without a ticket - for 10 minutes.  We were taking photographs of Chattanooga, TN's Riverbend festival and on a whim decided to take the 17 minute helicopter flight to nearby Manchester, TN.  Took the following photographs about 8:45 local time on Saturday night.  Saw another helicopter and landed near the main stage, but as we weren't officially part of the festival and no VIP passengers, we had to leave.  Maybe we can trade some photos for VIP tix next year?  It looked amazing - my dream would have been to go 2 years ago when The Police were playing - with an air conditioned RV.


    My first Bonnaroo - maybe next year I'll go.


    More photos on our website:  http://www.warrenmclelland.com/gallery12.html.  Prints available.


    p.s. Did I mention that Michael W. is an amazingly talented helicopter pilot?
