February 3, 2013 Super Bowl XLVII Fly-In

It was one of those rare cloudy days in northern New Mexico. But the temperatures weren't bad and the winds were near calm. Super Bowl Sunday is a fine morning to fly. How many hours of pre-game can a guy watch anyway???

Six fliers were at the field today. And as long as you could pick out your plane from the soupy clouds, it was a nice day!

Reuben's Fleet

Reuben brought not one, but two planes to the field to maiden.

His first maiden was a GWS Slow Stick that required a little less than a foot to take-off. The second plane was a nice scale Flyzone Sensei.

Ross cheerfully accepted trimming duties, after which Reuben was able to get some quality stick time.

Jack's Pitts M-12s

Jack has a new toy. It's a DLE55 powered Pitts M-12s. And it's a beauty.

Jack is doing a landing gear mod, so it didn't fly today. But it's an impressive looking plane just taxiing down the runway. Stay tuned for some inflight shots.

The rest

The usual cast of other planes was also flying today. Here are a couple shots including Mark's Ultra Stick with flaps down and Art's Yak.

Full Scale

One full scale plane was doing touch-n-gos. He never got close enough to get a tail number. But it's a nice looking older high wing with trike gear.

Sorry I missed the fly-in. The full-size aircraft is a Piper Tri-Pacer.
