    Top Gun 2012

    Typical.., The one year I don't bring my camera, and I have a great internet connection and some time to post photos.... Luckily Dustin has been a busy beaver with his Nikkon, and has been kind enough to let me borrow a few of his shots to post on here...

    So far the event is going great. The wind is relatively calm for Lakeland, and best of all, its down the runway for the most part. I have yet to see anyone suffering due to the strip, and thats because its in great shape... Even better than Florida jets I would say. In fact, I saw one of the " models of the meeting" avoid any damage what so ever today, when it had gear issues and had to belly land. I know that it would have been a different story on asphalt!

    So far we have had 2 rounds of Pro am flying, and the standards have been really high. It's been a few years since I have been to a Top Gun, but I really noticed an obvious increase in the flying standards. As always there is a great mix of stunning models.. Not just jets, and as always. We are having fun in the evenings

    Lots of stories, and lots of laughs. However. Dinner and drinks are becoming. So just some photos for now... Anyone else have snaps, please do feel free to post.

    RE: Top Gun 2012

    Is that an Aviation Design Mirage? Ali is it yours? Can't tell from the photos but it looks substantially larger than the Fei Bao one but I cannot tell...

    Mike Selby I believe is handing over the molds to Mibo when he is done competing in Top Gun. So I would imagine it will be coming out in the distant future.

    RE: Top Gun 2012

    Mibo jets web site is showing that the A-6 should be available late this year. It will be sold as either a twin engine set-up or with a Bi-furcated pipe for a big single turbine. I can't wait to see it i have always loved this plane for some reason.
