A Photo Salute to The 7th Annual Jet Rally in the Valley by Delta Valley Modelers

The annual jet rally was held in Lodi CA the first weekend in November.

Introduction

The 7th Annual Jet Rally in the Valley was open to EDFs as well as all turbo powered planes including jets and turbo prop planes. The weather was great on Friday and Saturday and pilots were able to fly on Sunday morning as scheduled before the predicted rain arrived. Pilot's ages ranged from 6 - 60+. Here is a collection of pictures and one short video of the planes flying on Saturday. If you like jets I hope you enjoy the show. Join us at Kingdon Air Park in Lodi next year for Delta Valley Modeler's annual jet rally. Enjoy the show.

What Were You Flying When You Were 6?

Karsten Flies Jets (OK EDFs) at sunrise on Dawn Patrol!

Karsten doesn't realize he should be afraid of all the things that can go wrong so he just flies and has fun and he does fly pretty well!

Well I was flying paper airplanes when I was six because no one would buy me a plane to fly.

Thread OP
When I was 6 I was flying the balsa rubber band powered $.25 model with red prop and plastic wheels. Our home was on an old growth tree lined street and I would risk everything to see my plane soar up to the canopy and then I could breath again as she flew below it back to relatively open air space. Unfortunately, they were elm trees and most were removed due to dutch elm disease about twenty years ago or so. Where was that disease when I really needed it to free up my air space? Mike H
