Mark,

You really know how to make a guy feel better. I sure hope I don't drive the jazzy over your Perfect next time you are out but I have been having some control problems with the Jazzy, especially around really nice pilots who only have my best interests at heart.

Bernie

Tim could have set his transmitter down to take some pictures, but as small as his Windrifter looked in the sky, it was probably a good thing he didn't. Plus, the stress of flying a 2 channel plane was taking it's toll on him.

Ah yes, consistencey is one of those great comforts in life, even if it is just knowing a reliable exit point of the digestive tract.

The videos are the work of Teri and Gary. It would be a little tough to fly the towplane and video at the same time.

I'm afraid it would turn out something like this.

Some pictures and vids of the CTRC aerotow

Not too many people showed up but the flying was great.

Their towplanes worked great and it was really a fun event.

Thanks to Mark Browing and the other tow pilots for a hosting the event.

Here are vids:
