His performance was absolutely stunning and breath taking and the large crowd in attendance was most appreciative and impressed by the electric powered planes and Bens' skills. Bens' Hacker powered Extra gave up nothing in performance to the 50 or so IC powered planes flown at the event. The fly-in was a huge success and basically carnage free because of the 30+ highly skilled pilots flying. Bens' flights were also enlightning to the all fuel crowd. Ben and I were the only "Electric" guys there. I flew my 87'' to show them how the plane can do ordinary stuff like most of them were doing. Ben Fisher along with Amy helped make this event the best it has ever been! Thanks again Ben and Amy and we hope you both can join us again next year. EK.
I really hate that I missed this event. Ben had mentioned it to me in a conversation but I couldn't make it.
I'm glad to hear your event went well. I am really happy to hear that Ben put on a great show.
I also love hearing about "Gas guys" with Jaws on the floor.
Hopefully I can make it next year.
