This morning, Digital Aircraft Factory had its first debut nationwide as part of an NBC Today Show Story on the 37th Anniversary of the crash of Eastern Flight 401. Digital Aircraft Factory's President and Chief Aviation Artist Catherine Smallwood works with the Eastern Flight 401 Tribute Committee as a volunteer committee member for the group, bringing her aviation expertise and artistic skills to assist the group as they work toward creating a tribute to those whose lives were lost or touched by the accident.
Using plans by the Miami architecture firm of Brockhouse Associates, P.A., she has worked with the firm to create a 3D model of the current proposed design which would be built at the site of the accident in the Florida Everglades.
Below is the link to the NBC Today Show video as well another image, one of the airliner itself, L-1011 N310EA, lost on Dec 29, 1972 on a dark winter night 37 years ago.

The Digital Aircraft Factory Attends The Greater Miami Aviation Association Board of Directors Meeting
Miami, Florida 3rd June 2009: In a professional gesture to assist the well established, 82 year old, Miami based civic aviation organization known as the Greater Miami Aviation Association (GMAA), the Digital Aircraft Factory (DAF) had the pleasure of attending their scheduled Board of Directors meeting, as the Digital Aircraft Factory has offered their technical and creative talent and assistance to help the organization with their image concerning their logo and website with a donated product from the (DAF).
Ms. Catherine Smallwood, the Chief Aviation Artist of the Digital Aircraft Factory gave the GMAA Board and their President, Mr. Dan Sullivan a detailed explanation as to how they are able to create the images of any aircraft in any markings by utilizing Hollywood grade special effect software, as well as presenting the group with a especially created 12 second digitally created video showing the created GMAA 727 in flight with ATC audio chatted and ambient jet sound within the background.
The (DAF) assistance could be helpful to the GMAA as their image, logo and lettering even among the folks shown around the table within the photo raised the query among the group as to "Who Are We" are we the "GMAA" as known to many in Miami or are we the "Greater Miami Aviation Association" Once that variable if figured out among the group, the (DAF) stands ready to assist the organization by contributing and donating their time and talent toward what the (DAF) considers a worthy cause. We wish the "GMAA" as we have always known it the best of luck and continued success.
