NEAT fair B-17 squadron

I am looking for interest in 5-6 people with 1200-2000mm B-17s for a squadron launch at the NEAT fair. I have a have a 1600mm Hobby King B-17 which flies wonderfully. The best would be if we were all about the same size.

If you can, come early. We got there Saturday night last year and left on the next Monday morning 10 days later. Talk about a great week of flying and relaxing. I wish it was closer for me (I'm about 650 miles away), I'd spend an extra week earlier in the summer there too!

My B17 is 1875mm not 1600m as I originally posted

I have a 1700mm that I was given. Will make it flight worthy for then. I was thinking of adding paintball bomb drop. This version does not have bomb bay but going to rig up a tube of some sort with a servo release.

Great!!! I will tighten up the requested range from 1600-2000mm wing span to allow for a better looking squadron!

I love this idea!
If it were not for the fact that I just started flying 4 channel last year, don't have a B17 of the appropriate size and have never flown a multi-engine aircraft...I'd love to join!
But I will be at NEAT and can't wati to see this.

I will be happy to join the NEAT Fair B-17 squadron with my HK Memphis Belle - assuming reasonable wind conditions. It flew at NEAT '12.

My B-17 is also the Memphis Belle from HK. That will be fantastic!!! We now have three. When Tom opens the 2013 NEAT fair Thread, I will move to it in hopes of getting the 5-6 planes in total. If they were all the same size exactly or close enough, it will be a site to see. I will contact Tom Hunt when we have enough to see if we can get into the noon Demos. We will exchange cell numbers as we get close and plan our flight. I have some ideas, but we should all get together early Friday to meet and agree to the final flight plan. I am thinking via email sometime in July or early August to start the process.

I am having surgery with a hip replacement and will not be able to bring my B-17 this year. I will shoot for next year.

Mine is always ready, so lets see if we can get at least three.
