I've got a TON of pics but narrowed it down to these 200. Enjoy.

I've attended the B-17 / Big Bird Scale Fly-In at Bomber Field USA several years ago. An amazing collection of scale warbirds and other aircraft. This is the first time I'll be able to attend and fly now that I own a Hangar 9 Piper Pawnee. Not sure I'll be welcome with open arms as it is an "electric" conversion but we'll see.

Here is the link to the website. For those of you in the Houston/Austin/San Antonio area...it's worth the trip.

Anyone catch this on the news? Let's hope the FAA doesn't come after us with a clinched fist and then throw new rules and regulations at us.

There is a good video to see in the above link.

I believe it "was" a ParkZone Sukhoi .
