I'm walking out the door for the last day of Joe Nall but I wanted to check in and give a little Joe Nall report. The weather has been perfect. It was pretty hot the first couple of days but the wind was really low and perfect for flying. The thing about Joe Nall is that it is really laid back. Everyone is there to have a good time and you can feel that as you walk around. The planes are amazing and there are all levels of pilots on the flight line. Bob Sadler and the Joe Nall gang have been great to work with and hang out with. They could not have treated us any better and that treatment extends out to everyone that attended.
Last night was the BBQ and bluegrass. What could be better than sitting in front of a huge hangar full of classic full scale planes, with a plate full of good food, a bluegrass band playing and Jason Shulman walking around with cookies for everyone...not to mention the full scale airshow before dinner? Amazing.
Watching Sadler go up in a cherry picker basket to pluck a plane from the tallest tree on the field was a fun thing to watch. The Hobby Lobby Mystery Drop was not only fun but was interesting to watch. When you drop AXI motors and Jeti controllers from a plane on to the field there is going to be some action!! Eddie Noble, the pilot of the drop plane, said he could feel the ground shaking before the saw the people run by him! I heard someone say it was like the running of the bulls but more intense. I got to do some guitar picking with some of the pilots that brought instruments. The biggest names in RC were continually on the flight line flying the biggest planes in RC. All these things make for an event that I will always remember. I was totally blown away.
It will be sad to leave but great to know this event will be waiting next year to attend.
Thanks to everyone that made this sucha a great event.
