RT 66 JETS is our favorite meet of the year. Just can't beat the RT 66 Jet Club. It certainly won't be the same without Roger Shipley be we all know he will be there in spirt. Wouldn't surprise me if that damn Gong shows up as well.

Count the Tulsa gang in!

Good to hear you guys are already anticipating another great event. Perhaps Ben could conduct a seminar this year on proper line formation of "The Stance". Doesn't seem everyone gets it right. Maybe a "Best Stance" award this year? Hmmm....

Ok, My present plan is to fly my airplane to Litchfield Airport on Friday just after lunch.. I will want to hangar my plane if possible for one night, maybe 2, I can share with jets. Can Tie down if needed.. Hopefully the weather will cooperate.. Still working on if or how to get planes there. Here it is if you see me. I will circle around behind the flight line so don't freak.. LOL..

Andy, the "Gong" was great fun. Would love to have you bring it back this year.
Goose, I like the sporty stipe colors on your plane. We can probably put it in with the jets.

Default Pre-registration

Pre-registration ends in four weeks. Do it now so you don't forget. Would save most of you gas money to the event & some roundtrip.
