Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy

This was taken from the session before this last weekend. I was trying to get the Brio but my little camera has such a wide lens it was a bit hopeless. I had to settle on Sam's body English. Considering the Brio was full of Tungsten and the wind was 40 mph I think Sam was pretty cool about flying his missile. I wish I could post the high res so you can see the Brio action better. When I looked at the low res footage the Zagi fit in pretty well.

Looks like fantastic conditions, but I can see that I will have to add to my wardrobe as well as to my hangar when I move up there next month. We were flying in short sleeves this weekend and you guys are still bundled up! On the other hand, I was stuck in traffic for 40 minutes getting to Banning yesterday and I bet you didn't have much getting to Eagle Butte. Can't wait to see how my Raven takes to the Tri-Cities slopes!

Joel and I got some flying in at EB this weekend. Slightly cross conditions on Sunday with winds in the 20-35 mph range. Today was spectacular. 15-25 mph straight into the hill. Had the best time I've had in recent memory. Joel and I had the hill to ourselves both days. Joel got his Jaro Muller Ellipse 2V maidened and I got my Pike Superior maidened and dialed in.

Yes Tom, Vic and Joel have gone over to the dark side.
It just leaves you and me to keep the small planes alive and flying.
We will fight the good fight.............

Seriously, Vic, Joel, I'm jealous, looks like you guys had a great time and had all the sky to your selves. Thanks for the pics.
