You know Al, you will like this (Rob too). That pink spitfire got some, errr, ugh odd looks let's just say. I was slinking away from the flight line (spitfire upside down to make it appear blue!) when Mike Glass bellows "HEY TOMMY NICE PINK SPITTY!". I wanted to crawl under a rock.

NEAT fair memories rule.

Wow, that was a cool flashback. It's amazing how the event has grown

I like how Tom was yelling in the background "the planes don't know it's windy!"

I'm in for this year - curious to find out what Tom has up his sleeve...

I think there should be 3 spotters for each pilot to avoid collisions and such. j/k

I'll have my trusty E-Flite P-47. She's only missed one MWL (hopefully she'll make it to 2015 ).

I reinforce my airplanes now with 2 inch drywall fiberglass joint tape... Just lay it on the wing as well as leading edge, it is tacky but has no permanent adhesive,,, Then squeegee some quick grip or foamtac over it with a subway gift card.....

ya.. that is a rare picture of me without a hat.... I was wearing one of those down the back of the neck type, and decided it had to come off for the pic.

I'm debating between the trusty ol' Parkzone Trojan with a Mobius camera on top to commemorate the action from within, and the veteran F4F "Polaris Slayer" that is so crooked and twisted, it is hard to fly.

Sergy, maybe you could bring the Spitfire that mid-aired with my Gunfighter Mustang at Colts Neck if it's still flying.

I'll bring it too. It refuses to die as well. Earlier this summer I was about to bury it after it lost its tail in another combat mid-air. But the next morning I found the tail and the little plane lives on.
