Maybe, but Lozza's lens is bigger...

Must be my networked server at work, but all of the images in the first post, and several subsequent posts were just Red X's. Bummed I can't be there to shoot it. I'll have to get my fix here, through y'all.

A few pics from today. Another crazy nice day with beautiful weather and almost no wind. Hot yes but perfect flying weather. The WW1 planes have all the advantages today. Grass runway, no wind. Let's see if they can get some decent flight scores under ideal conditions.

First rounds of all other classes today. Expert, Masters, Team and Unlimited. New planes to look at and lots of great flying...

First up, Gystavo Campana, Aviation Design Mirage, JetCat P-200

Ali flew a real jet today... one of those without a hair dryer inside :-)

Team scale with Graeme Mears. Impressive 99.425 static score and two solid flight rounds today. T-33

Mr. Top Gun, Jack Diaz from Venezuela. Jack and I compete in the same class and on the same flight line. We have had 100% identical scores 2 days in a row :-)

And the scale size of the F-4U propeller.

Dude! Bet if you go to an F-1 race you will not look at your cars the same way either.
Don't feel bad, these guys flying at Top Gun are paid millions of dollars by their sponsors.

Kevlar suit on! :-)
