Default Joe Nall

Spent the day at Joe Nall yesterday. I didn't take many pictures (I'm sure someone will chime in to say there are pictures on Facebook), but just wanted to mention that many jets were in attendance. BVM had a small tent (but not much else), Jet Central/Aeropanda were there and also Chief Aircraft. Overall, the event looked to be as big as ever. The only jet flying the noon-time show was a thrust vectored model I am not familiar with (or the pilot). In this picture, it is hovering alongside a 3-D gasser and elec helicopter. Look close and you can see the 3-D and helicopter pilot holding their transmitters behind their backs. The helicopter slammed in a minute or two later but looked good up until then. I saw and talked to a lot of jet guys I know. Maybe some of them can add some pics or commentary.

Just remembered, there was a second jet demo at noon time. Frank Knoll flew a Thunderbird scheme BVM F-16 (the bigger one I think). The engine hatch blew off on about the 2nd pass and he had to cut short the routine.

It might have been Bob. I know I heard Quique's name mentioned but not sure if that was him. The P/A system was really crappy. The jet in question had landing gear similar to a J-10 but a wing/tail/missile rail arrangement more like an F-16 but the front end was all wrong. Somebody on here must know.

It’s the Powerbox team with Martin Pickering’s girl friend flying the Heli on Mikado radio. The Jet is the Chinese thing the Elster boys replaced the J10 with after selling the J10 design to CARF.

A great event for the jet guys. I dont think a single jet was lost with several hundred jet flights taking place. I flew 17 flights with my F4,T33 and Dolphin and flew Julian Mashburns Airworld Mig 21 twice. Our small group had 7 jets and 5 of them flew. This pic is our Fei Bao jets l to r Dolphin S w/Jet Central Cheeta, Dolphin w/ Jet Central Rhino SP, Swordfish w/ KT 260 and my T33 w/ Jet Central Rhino 200.
that performed flawlessly.

Whats up with the drama on FB about a jet pulled out in front of a b25 causing it to crash?

Post the link. Havent seen it. The only 2 events that i saw that riled up the masses was a Team Horizon guy flew against the pattern and mid aired a guy head on then just blew it off and another guy thought he had shut down his giant 3d bird but had not. Pushed left stick to full and it tore through the pits damaging a bunch of airplanes

As someone that spent a lot of time on the main line with a camera for several years, I see more spotters watching their pilots fly and shooting the breeze than I see paying attention to other airplanes and what's going on in the pattern and looking for potential problems.

A lot of guys were smoking on low passes over the rwy not just jets. I think it is poor judgement. See it at every event.

The pilot stations look like they are really far apart in the picture. With airplane noise it seems station one spotter would have a hard time communicating with station four, five or six. At other big events I have flown, all the pilot stations are relatively close. In many cases all the planes taxi in and out at one location. There is also an air boss controlling aircraft movement. I have never flown at Joe Nall (maybe someday)..Does anyone have first hand knowledge how they move planes?
