Slick, but if I wanted to drop water balloons... the trojan

dropping water balloons..... sounds as queer as shooting MUPS with a paint gun

I would have loved to seen what frozen paint balls would have done to theT28

you really need to purchase some 12' wingspan Telemaster with serious bombay to add the element of coolness (and possible jail time) to dropping stuff from our planes

The 12' Telemaster water balloon bomber would be cool.

Dropping one water balloon with a plane is cool. But having 20 of them drop from a plane is EVEN COOLER

I may have to pay rent to live in it soon :-)

To say my wife enjoys my hobby would be like saying there are decent politicians ..... Both are rarities

no, I don't believe there has been any agreement. I PMed Wedgewing and it sounds like he is available. But I will let him chime in.

Well Dabbler is local on the 21st & 22nd. Setting up for a Stacks II ?

If we were all about enticing Arron into bringing his fire breather, then Nick and I need to lobby our club leadership for a one day pass at the big field (which they would do to actually see someone that can fly a gasser the way God intended)

If this is an all electric fair we can invade our other site, or bring Stacks II to the original home that made it what it is

The large blue nuclear chemical containers are gone from the Stacks site, and i think of all the sites it provides the highest level of mayhem creation

Yep I am good for the 22nd. Already got clearance from the boss. Just waiting to hear if we got a gasser so that we can contact the Pres. I am good at any location.

Does that work for everyone?
