My first turbine.... the Rooskie! (it turned blue after Ibroke the nose off on flight #35)

And..... not a jet, but he can certainly fly one, Rick Byrd, one of the best sticks around.

Well, that's it until we go flying again! I'm out of pictures!

Les' (ama234) F-15 ..... Avonds, I think?

Gary Grant's Jet Mach - P-60 powered (Shoks old demo model) and his ICDF Interceptor
Man,
That's an old pic of my F-15! That was before I finished with all the panel lines and dirtied it up with the over-done weathering job. But it looked oh-so-good in the air!!

Some day in the future when I have some time, I'll finish the repairs to it.

Last ones.... (thx for joining us at our home field David, you're welcome anytime bud)

OK..... so as I was pulling off the hwy I noticed Buck was not too far behind me. We have to go through a park gate/checkpoint to get to our field - Ipull up and show the attendant my card, she raises the gate, etc. I tell her "that guy behind me....... don't let him in, give him a real hard time!" She smiles, Iroll forward and watch in the rvm, Isee Buck scrambling around, checking pockets,console, etc., LMAO..... after he gets through I find out he showed her his 2010 AMA card and she said,"it's still 2009, that's not gonna work!" Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Heeeeeeeeeee!Not bad for a 100 year-old lady on the fly!! ........had him searchin'..........

Good flying weather today here in Ft Worth. I was a little nervous at first but once i got that first flight down I was good to go. Nice field for small to medium jets.

Ok since I am from Houston I am calling it New Years weekend at Scobie field. So we will see yall there.

Oh the battery and charger was the only other guy that was left there. So you dont have to worry about it James

Hey, why don't you get in a plane Friday and drop by to Dominican Rep.
You'll love it. Just ask Shui. He has almost become a citizen or D.R.

Calling out for Tbird jet heads this weekend! Let's celebrate the last days the last Festivus of the decade.

This is not a drill.

Saturday @ 53F then it is downhill from there, looks like for a while! [:@]

(Can someone bring the Festivus pole?)
