Corsair Nut,

Yeah, I like that UTE field near the airport, though the asphalt is pretty ripped up. Crashed my nicest plane there at their last fly-in. Too bad they're losing the site to a freaking soccer complex. Ugh. Wade Joos is a fantastic modeler, world-class. Love his chromified bomber, I've seen that fly several times (and crash badly once).

Their new site is another half hour west on the way out to Reno near the Salt Flats. Not as convenient, but still pretty nice.

A buddy in my club has that same Kyosho Spit, it's beautiful, though the cowl is a bit whimpy. I'm building the CMP 109 to fly formation with his spit.

I'm jealous in ways the English language can't properly describe, getting to fly in a twin-seat P51. Ugh, I'm green with an unhealthy kind of envy! I'll just say, I hope you have a blast! I wish I were gonna be there to see it! Lemme know if that guy gives tours, I'll swing by next time I'm out your way.
