Default Joe Nall

Everyone,
We need to know for sure if any or how many would like to be apart of the noon demo for skydiving at Joe Nall this year. I don't want to make any commitments if it is only going to be three of us and only one plane. It would be nice to have a few planes and maybe five or six jumpers. Any body who lives close to that area or goes to the event normally that would be interested in doing this please post a reply.

Gary ,
I know you usually go, what are your thoughts of the trees for the center stage event? I am concerend we might end up with all of them in the trees being they are not that far away.

Any and all input would be great, this would be a major undertaking for all of us involved so if we want to do this we need to plan accordingly. Thanks to everyone.

Mike S.

Mike,

What are the dates for Joe Nall. Maybe I can bring a jumper from Turkey. I attended a couple years ago and had a blast.

Mike,

My concern would be hitting one of the many expensive airplanes on the flight line than a tree.

HI Guys,

Talked to a R/C er today who goes to Joe Nall every year and is in the noon airshow. He says including R/C Skydivers is a good idea. The pit area is about 125Yds from the first small tree line and landing on the runway should be no problem as long as there is no dirt dive involved. Of course the wind could be a bad thing.

I agree with Gary, I would not want to land on one of those big expensive planes parked all over the pit area. Barring something unusual, like dirt dive or high winds, we should have no problem in putting on a good show. I'm willing to try!!! I will have my Stinger that carries 3 jumpers and will be flown by one of the best pilots around and also can have 2 other experienced Jumper pilots if none of you guys needs a ride.

One thing to consider is the cost of getting there on Tuesday and staying thru the Sat demo.
Many motels are availiable in Greenville which is 25 mi away from Triple Tree. Reservations need to be made early as most attendees not staying in an RV will probably be staying around Greenville.

This is just a few things to think about before signing up for the event. Gary V. probably has more info as he goes ther almost every year. What about it Gary?

This is the most unique photo ever taken at the Nall. It is like google streetview but, from the air. When your looking at it use the mouse to pan. Also click on the text with the ghost heli to jump to a new location on the field. I think their is 4 or 5 of them.

Mike,
That is what Bob meant when he said Toledo. I think he has a problem with geography. Either that or he can't spell big words like "Centerburg".

PS: I had sent you a PM about your Seattle trip.

Hi Juan,
I replied back to your PM but, for some reason they don't seem to be getting to you. I actually emailed you twice. I will be traveling to that area again this year we will have to plan something when that time comes.

Jim,
Right now Paul Fannin and are planning to go regardless if we are sky diving or not. It does not apprear that Reiner will be coming. I don't know about anyone else. My concern is tree's and airplanes. I have mixed feelings about the whole thing, there are a lot of variables involved with droping a jumper at this type of event. The functions of a skydiver are not perfect yet and I would consider it a large risk doing somehting at this type of event.

Mike,

I agree with you especially after seeing the photo of the field. The distance from the flight line to the trees is not enough space to safely drop even on a calm day. A guy dropped a Mike a few years back at the old field and he wound up in the trees. (much more than 75' from flight line to trees there). The guy is a great skydiver pilot too!

None of the other guys have expressed any interest in making a jump so I think we should let them know we can't get enough people to make a safe mass jump like they want. Like Gary, I don't want to land on top of a biiiig expensive airplane or in the trees.

It takes a lot for me to "Chicken out"[&o] but I think that's the right thing to do.

I hope to go on Thurs and Fri. Hope I can see ya'll there.

Jim

Jim, this is Chris, I believe if you get experienced jumper pilots to pilot the jumpers you should have no problem. The distance between the flight line and the trees is about as much distance as we have at Mac's with the "fly-in" line to the runway across from us. Right to left you have more than enough room. Myself, Ryan, Buddy, Mac and I believe Trey will be there so if you need some experienced jumper pilots we'll be there to help.

Anybody want to reconsider the Joe Nall skydiving invitation? Chris has flown my Stinger jump plane many times and has jumped both my Mike and Charly skydivers at differeny fly ins around this area. There would be no shortage of qualified jump plane pilots or skydiver pilots in the group that Chris mentions.

They want more than just one jump plane to participate in order to have a bunch of skydivers in the air at one time.

Anyone interested?

Jim

I haven't counted it out, I think the noon demos run Wed. thru Sat.
I think the biggest concern would be the wind and the direction it is coming from.
We will do all of the skydiver releases over the lake, the worst we could do is kill a couple of fish HA,HA

I still don't know when I will be there, I usually don't go until thursday.
Wes is planning on going down on Sunday and stay all week.

I still don't have the Giant Telemaster ready, now it needs a little more work.
Moron me thought it would be a good idea to throw a motorcycle tire up in the air while standing beside it.
Needles to say I missed it, and it came down on the horizontal stab knocking some stringers loose.

The plan is to have it set up to drop four skydivers.

Fannin and I are not going, to many safety risks. It is different at an actual Skydive event. Everyone is aware of what could happen. I would feel horrible if something happened to someone or their airplane due to wind or a diver not opening. We are all good pilots but, with that much going on and that many nice airplanes, I agree with Gary's earlier post. I'll pass.

Jim bring your skydivers!! You have enough jumpers and planes to do a well done show! If anything the only concern would be wind. I think the best place to release the jumpers would be out to the left or right, towards the lake. I'm sure you will be able to do some test jumps to really see how they would work out with 5 or 6 or more in the air. Remember at the Pop Curtis, we all did really well with the winds, and everyone pretty much caught the jumper. Even you caught it and the jumper had no inputs. LOL See you there!!

Yea, we did do a good job at the Pop Curtis flyin at Mac's, but we have done some bad jumps there too! I only have one jump plane to drop 3 jumpers anyway.

Superbee-rc, looks like we can't get a mass skydiver jump for ya'll. Sorry about that!

Chris, I have to save my pennies for the July trip to Columbus, Oh to participate in their 2nd annual Skydiver Competition. Come on up and you can use one of my Mikes!

Mike S. I practiced a HALO yesterday-can't give you the results. Dont want to give away my special jump techniques!!![>:]
