Recently, I was able to attend the AMA "West" Expo and Convention in Ontario California on January 6th....

I've attended several past events, but had to skip last year's Expo because I was in El Paso and actually had to work !!!! (Truth be told, I was in Louisiana conducting a large-scale, month long training exercise with the Army....)

In any event, this year's Expo was a great event, and if you ever get a chance to go....BY ALL MEANS GO !!! In fact, the reason why the AMA is calling this one "West", is because for the first time (as far as I'm aware) they will actually be having one on the EAST coast of the United States, in conjunction with the renowned WRAM show, which will be held February 24–26, 2017, at the Meadowlands Exposition Center in Secaucus, New Jersey.

That said, I had the opportunity to catch up with Chris Puckett, the Horizon Hobbies aircraft designer who is responsible for the E-flite 1.2m P-47D, and was on hand to answer questions regarding two of his latest creations, the fantastic new UMX Waco BL, and the E-flite Valiant 1.3m !

Chris was very cordial and polite, even allowing me to interview him as he described the design features of his latest planes....

First up, is an in-depth look at his stunning new UMX Waco BL:

New Year's Eve greetings one and all!!!

First, I'd like to wish everyone a very Happy and Festive New Year, and give a sincere "Thanks" to all of those who have frequented my blog, and watched all the various videos I've posted over the years!!!

Speaking of videos, here's the latest video I shot starring the UMX A-10, and this time at my new stomping grounds, Bennett Field in Fabulous Las Vegas, NV

As usual, it's filled fun and frivolity, lots and lots of low level work, and the occasional loop or reverse half-Cuban eight thrown in for good measure....

Hope y'all enjoy the video HALF as much as I enjoyed making it !

Here's wishing all of you a very happy New Year and best wishes for a healthy, fulfilling 2017
