The poster for the event can be seen at the Delta Valley Modeler's Website.
Do you feel the need for speed?

DIRECTIONS TO: KINGDON AIR PARK

On I-5 in North Stockton take the Eight Mile Road exit and go East.
The first traffic light is Thorton Road. Turn left onto Thorton Road.
Thorton road initially goes straight North. When it starts to make a sweeping turn to the North West there is a right turn lane for DeVries Road.
Take Devries Road, it only goes north. Look for Kingdon Air Park on your left.
Drive down the taxi way on the far left to the center of the field and you are there.

The event is only two weeks away and the long range weather forecast is still for good weather. I will update when we are a week out. Today is spectacular for flying and I hope the same is true in two weeks. Mike H

The weather forecast for the event is still excellent! Steaks have been ordered for the Saturday night dinner and plans go forward for this event. I will update next week with the seven day forecast. I can almost smell the jet fuel and see the giant LiPos being charged.

Delta Valley Modelers Jet Rally


Our annual Jet Rally at Kingdon Airport starts Friday Nov. 6, thru Sunday Nov. 8, 2015. The weather outlook looks great in the high 70s. Entry fee includes a Saturday night steak dinner with all the fixings cooked by our famous Italian Chef Chuck Galletta. The dinner will be held at Kingdon Airpark in the hanger. All jet turbines, prop turbines, and electrics are welcome. This is shaping up to be a great event, with many jet pilots from the Crows landing and Buttomwillow events said to be attending.

the long awaited rain came yesterday and today but we have sunshine starting tomorrow and through the event. Mother nature just washed off the runway. Temps are now predicted to be in the low 70's so weather wise the forecast is excellent. Bar-B-Que lunch available on Friday and Saturday and the pilots steak dinner on Saturday night. Everything is shaping up for this to be a great event.

Some individuals may have generators at the site but the sponsor won't have power available to pilots or the public in general. Might be able to set up a charger at the hangars at the south end of the field. I recommend making friends with someone with power if you are in need. Mike H
