If you have seen Mac Hodges perform with his B-29 in person, you know what a treat it is. He puts on an awesome show.

Bring your camera and camcorder and make a video for yourself!

Here's a link to a video.

I too was there. Incredible flying. Wonderful event. The Mac Hodges' flights on Saturday were amazing. And then the 3 jets flying formation. Then the 8 gassers of The US, Germany and Japan all flying and battling. Great day....great weather....great time.
Thanks to all who put this together.

I was only able to go on Friday (work schedule), but I did get to see Mac Hodges fly around 1:00PM. I never get tired of watching him put that 22 ft wingspan B-29 through some of the manuvers that he does. It would put a 3D pilot to shame! Hanging it on the props of those four, ten hp engines...awesome The flat spins the four point rolls, inverted low passes, just incredible!
Hopefully next year, I'll be able to sample all three days...
