A man from Kirkland, Wash. captured some great aerial photos of the snow fall this morning.

Zach Sweetser hand launched an airplane from his neighborhood of Rose Hill to get these shots.

Using a Multiplex Fun Cub with a camera mount taped and superglued to the bottom, Sweetser sent the plane into the air three times.

The first flight went to about 400 feet, which is the legal limit for a remote-controlled flight. The second flight was at 200 feet and the last one went just above the tree line.

The battery in the remote-controlled aircraft lasts about 10 minutes.

Sweetser captured these photos during a snowstorm in January 2012.
