Visalia Fall Aerotow

Perhaps the Fall aerotow at Visalia left everyone speechless and photoless. It was a great event this year with more people than ever. Canon blasts/John Wilson and sailplanes filled the air. Tow planes and pilots galore. Yet not a word or a pic on Groups or RC Aerotowing as of yet. Ryan and Gary led the tow parade, Mike had a beautiful new Wilga, Ken's bumble bee Wilga was honey dripping. Rick and Scot towed on and on and on. In between Cannon blasts John Wilson added tows. This event was no jabber joust.....flying was everything. The sky opened up and never stopped inviting pilots to fly, as long as they could last.

Maybe I'm the 1st to come back from the clouds...............here's a couple of pics(so so) Please add some photos and commentary.

Yes, it was a great time. After about 10:30 Saturday, the air was up in every direction. The Visalia field is a fabulous venue for this...thanks to CVRC for hosting us.

Mark - I thought this was supposed to be the Fall Stealth Aerotow. I was too busy flying and eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches except for this one picture of my 40% Phoenix Models Ka8 and the new DiLeo third scale 1-26.

The flame red and burgundy is much more appealing. Well done.

You need to see this one up-close to really appreciate how nice it is! Not sure if I like it or the bumblebee Wilga more... As always, amazing work Ken.

Hopefully next year we can make the fall aero-tow and inundate RC Groups with pictures for you guys. Glad that everyone had a great time.

Finally found a job over here working on helicopters in Lakeside, AZ. meanwhile Shari is in Albq, NM.

All the best,

Bill

I strongly encourage you guys to post more pictures over there at RCAT. There are people working hard to get a site back up and improved and they can use every bit of support. Maybe it's not perfect yet, and maybe we're all too used to this RCG thing but please keep using that site that was created for us Scale Soaring junkies
