Wonderful video! I honestly cannot count how many time's I watched it after this year's BFUSA Warbird meet. VASTLY looking forward to this weekends B-17 gathering. I am going to try to take some video (via friends at varying positions for multiple shots of the same take-off's and landings that will make for great splicing together. We should collaborate on the 2012 video and wow the RC community with what Bomber Field has to offer :-)

See you there!
