This is a really great event that I look forward to all year. Wonderful facility, friendly folks, what more could you ask for? Even bringing some fellow Canadians in search of warm weather this year. And my Top Gun bird fresh from the paint shop....

Thank you Jim:
Can't wait to see the new finish on your gorgeous plane. Also thank you so much for the terrific JPO Trophy. The Jet Pilots Organization really supports our Jet Events, just ask them.
Lot's of guys out already are here they love flying at our sea level field. Planes really perform down here, by the way sea level runs straight thru the middle of our runway, try it you will like it.
See you this weekend.

Hey Jim that plane looks great, I hope I get a chance to see it.

Dan you are 100% right, the dense air there at sea level is amazing. Hope to see you guys on Friday.

I'll be there tomorrow. Got stuck at home doing some unavoidable things here. Hopefully I can still knock out the waiver flight.

Hi Doug
Just got home from the field.... Lots of Motor Homes and some really beautiful BIG Jets.
All is in place for a wonderful day of flying this weekend.
I am sure we can get that flight in early in the morning. The official start time is 9.

Ken,
For some reason I don't see any pictures of the cougar. Hope you take some of the F18! Wish I could be down there!

Hi Kevin,

Got 5 flights on the new Cougar. Flys great, but had some gear mounting plate issues. Itís holding for now. Need to make a perfect landing every time otherwise it may not be repairable at the field.

F-18 twin ready to go for Saturday.

Iíll see if I can upload some pictures when I get back.

I registered as pilot 28 on Friday. Feels and looks like so many more here. Largest sized group of jets Iíve seen at a meet I think ever.

Weather is fantastic here!

Ken

Not all the pictures from the Jet Jam are on our web site yet but you can view what we do have so far. There is also an album for a video taken at the Jet Jam by a guest. He did a great job.

The link below will take you to the photos page of our web site. When you get to the photos page you can click on the link that says "Click here to go to the photo albums" Our pictures are stored in Flickr in various albums by events.
