Question, this will be my first Kentucky Jets. Are EDF foamies like Habu 2, etc flown?, or is it strictly turbines?

Not sure what days you plan on being there. The beginning of the week is much lighter. It is always a great time, see you there.

Hadn't really thought of that. In that case I may stay there the whole week!

Hi Jordan...It will be great to finally get you here. You're going to have a great time, and meet a lot of great people.

I'm still showing that video you made for me many years ago...One of my best. See you in Kentucky!

Default Foamies and Turbines

I would like to remind everyone, that foamies are welcome to fly after hours. Traffic is such that it would obstruct the regular flying pattern. However if there is a break, and no one is flying, permission may be granted. We did this on a few occasions last year, but with permission only.

Thanks,
Lewis

Lewis, Off to a great start I see. Thanks Billy D for the great fireworks Video. I have a line on a new fireworks vendor this year, hopefully we can make it a bigger and better show!! Anyone have any connections to fireworks let me know. You can write me at Jacknbets@aol.com. We shot hundreds of shells off last year with four people loading and lighting as quick as we could. And no errant shots either!
Really looking forward to another great year, if anyone reads this and has never been to Ky Jets, it is well worth coming to fly or watch. The Grandest Jet Pilots are here! Also guys like me, who when the word Grand is used, it is followed by Pa Pa ! Whats great is that no matter who you are, there is Friendship and Fellowship all week long. Oh..... and we bring a pool for evening pool parties! Rich, You still got that pool? So whether you a new Jet Guy or an old friend, stop at our tables and yap about Jets. Probably at spot 13 or 14 somewhere there anyway, might be next (hopefully) to that darn Ohio group rowdy crew! (They show up with bones!) We do have fun!
My Mig 21 is trimmed and flying and hope to get lots of flights on it this year, also a new Elan Boomer that Snaps on take off... sometimes intentionally too! Stick around for the Fireworks and Parade of Lights on Fri night. CU Jack Graham

Hi Dan,

We are doing shirts again this year. Same material as last year, but yellow and with a pocket. Information on ordering will be available in a few days. We will also do hats with the event logo on the front.

Yes, there will be a 40X200 big top same as last year.

There is no charge for pilots with campers.

Thanks,
