Just talked with someone down there and they said it was kind of misty/light rain but people were still flying.. That's all I know other than I wish I was down there instead of at my desk at work.

Rained most of the afternoon, halted flying and probably put a damper on the car races.

This Turkey as well as many others were from Agustin de Alba, Mexican Pylon Racer who pased away some months ago and he has a lot of Wild Turkeys wich were sold to pylon racers in MĂ©xico.

Who owns the twin???

Regards.
VĂ*ctor.

Ahh,

The old stash of Turkeys are out. So those are the ones Norm Johnson built, primarily of carbon fiber?

Gotcha, I was hoping someone was making them now.

Mike DelPonte owns the twin. It was built about 10 to 12 years ago, but has never been flown.

You´re right, these are Norm Jhonson´s Turkeys with foam core wings covered in layers of carbon fiber.

I´ve had the opportunity to watch several turkeys but all of them with the SS Nelson, and they were quit impressive and very stable flying...........Wonder how they will perform with the new LS Q40 engines.
