Yes, the Thud flew a number of times. Ali did a great job with it. It was a BIG impressive airplane. It was the SuperSize jet rally. The huge Thud, Scott Marrs big F-5, A flock of HUGE Hawks, Patels L39 and the gaggle of Hogs. Very Impressive for the big birds. Scotty

Second that, that Ferrari scheme Viper that James bought at the auction was just frigging beautiful. Now we just need to harass Skippy into getting it done. Scotty

OMG! What a fantastic event. Thanks to all who helped to put on this jet fly. Joey and Nancy really outdid themselves on this one. Dave, thanks son, great photo of the F86 in flight. Hard to believe it’s a foamy. Ali, thanks for the maiden on my Snowbird. Hope it looks half as good when I fly it. Lowell, thanks for the birthday party, that was awesome, never thought I would have 150 people from all over the world sing happy birthday to me. That will be hard to beat! Thank you to all the Barks members that volunteered their time to support. Thank you to all the fellow pilots, wives, kids friends etc. The comradely at this event on a scale of 1 to 10 was definitely at least a 100! Can’t wait till next year.

Kevin,
The F-4 is owned by Dave Phillips and is a Skymaster that was ordered through Global Jet Club in that scheme. It wasn't one they offered but after giving them all the documentation and a bit of waiting it came less a couple of things they forgot that Dave ended up doing. It has a pair of Jet Central Cheetahs and is a real pleasure to fly.

Funny, I got a custom scheme on my Skymaster F-4 (the smaller one) through BVM, and there are a couple of things that they forgot there too - that I will end up doing... []

Seems par for the course for a custom scheme from Skymaster. Its a good start though...

Unfortunately, I didn't get video of the hill clmbing but I wish I would have. That was some of the best flying. It was awesome watching 6 ships go balls-to-the-wall in unison a few feet apart. It was even more fun watching you jaw with Raf after the flight. Next year I won't put the camera away so early.

Thanks Doug! Awesome seeing you and the gang bro. It was definitely great to smell jet A again and hanging out with one of the greatest brotherhoods I know of.

Fantastic event. Joey sure knows how to do it and pulls out all the stops. Starting to sort through the 14 or so hours of footage, and am almost fully recovered :-)

You the MAN Bob!!!! The F105 was off the hook and the F14 was bad ass... Wings back, legs up low pass to vertical then wings open was one of the best passes of the event in my book. Congrats on the awards as well.. I've never seen someone get so excited!!! Well deserved.... As for the sun down tomfoolery,,, what can I say... It is the reason we do this... Glad you enjoyed it!
