    T-Boning

    Randy, I said NO T-boning!

    Ok, I'll take the blame on this one, but it was one of the more spectacular mid-airs I've seen.

    I'll miss that Seeker, she was a good plane.

    Never seen gear shear like that.

    RE: T-Boning

    I was just about to say something to you as you came around #3 but before I could it was too late.. You two were trying to do that for at least 2 laps before it actually happened..

    At least all the parts landed on the field and not in the corn..

    RE: T-Boning

    And this whole time I thought Randy was the one who was rough on landing gear! I hope he got the mid-airs out of his system, and wasn't just practicing them! But Dave, come on now... you know better than to tell a fellow racer he CAN'T T-bone you...

    RE: T-Boning

    It was a great wreck I have never seen a landing gear chopped It was raining pieces I don't think that it was a true "T" bone in my opinion since they were both going the same direction Just tried to use the same air space. The only one I think was better was a three plane one I saw back in the Q Midget days Two planes hit and before they could fall a third plane hit the two of them in mid air and then the whole mess fell into a creek that was running close by Most of the parts are still there

    RE: T-Boning

    Come on Randy, you're just made because Dave told you to get out of the way prior to the impact

    As I recall, you said that to me in my early days right before chopping my tail off..

    RE: T-Boning

    There was a cool one in Muncie 8-10 years ago. Mid air at #1, and one of the planes wings seperated from the fuse and as it was tumbling to the ground a third plane crashed into the falling wing.

    I salvaged my tail though, that saves about 4 hours.

    RE: T-Boning

    My favorite was when I won the race cut the throttle pulled straight up to do a victory roll and drove right through the tail of Dave’s Leeker. Was that great.
