Damn, should have tagged along with Ragtop. What a beautiful site, you guys are sure lucky to have a field like this. Hey are there any swags available for this event (hats, t-shirts)?? If so, would like to see what they look like. If I like something maybe I can convince Mike to bring something home for me.
Have fun guys while I slave away at work.

Heading home tomorrow, so another great EJETS, E Warbirds comes to a close for me. A big thanks to Kevin, Terry, and all the TORKS members for sharing their great flying site, all the hard work to put this event together, and for their hospitality!!

Guys, if you like to fly EDF jets and/or electric warbirds, you have got to put this on your calendar for next year. Great flying site, no lines, great folks, lots of flying

Video of Best Scale Jet. Plane flew great, and sounded awesome!

Big thanks to TORKS club for holding this great event. Got in lots of great flights at the fantastic field with near perfect weather. Notice I said great flights, not great landings Great group of folks both running and attending the event.

Special thanks to Dave , Mike and Chris's magical pile of tools for helping me fix the landing gear on my F/A-18. Thanks also to Mike for posting the great video

I was honored to win the Best Scale Jet award with the Yellow Aircraft F/A-18, luckily for me Mike hadn't painted his jets yet

Looking forward to next year.

You earned it, she flew great!

I will say that I'm a little disappointed there wasn't an award for most landings per flight. I know I was in the running for that one! By the end of each day I started greasing the landings, but earlier, bounce city

I all honesty, I had no illusions of winning anything. All I wanted was to see is the F-18 fly...with a controlled landing! Was super happy to have the opportunity to fly it there, and was thrilled she flew so nice. Winning the Flight Recognition award for finally getting this thing in the air, was pretty cool!
