GREAT TIMES!!! This event has world class aircraft and pilots. The best part for me though is hanging out with all the good friends I dont see every day. It was good to see friends from Brazil, California, Arizona, Oklahoma, the MN boys, Illinois, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, Florida, Missouri, Nebraska, and yeah, even those from Texas.

I just cant help but look at the pilot veterans there from WWII and see them now and wonder how it must have been to be 22yrs old over Europe in Mustangs, Jugs, and the bombers. Truely awe inspiring for me personally. This event has it all. Much more than model airplanes.

Here are a few out of mine that I thought weren't to bad. I really liked the way the thunderheads up north popped up on Saturday and made for some cool back ground on a few of the shots.

I second everyone's comments here. I like that everyone is friendly and the non-stop flying is off the hook [8D] I talked to some of my neighborsand told them about WOTR's and they had never heard of it. I talked a couple of them in bringing their kids out for the first time to see RC and they are now hooked and can't wait to go out again I'm new to the area and the neighbors kids have become frequent visitors when ever they see me with the garage/shop door rolled open. I would expect even a few more visits now with many questions

Thanks to all for making this ol'Wyoming Cowboy feel so welcome

Would anyone have some shots of the three bombers flying in formation flying late afternoon on Saturday? The B-17, B-29 and B-25?

Well, looks like I struck out Lyle. I don't have any pictures of the three bombers in the air together.

The problem I have is that I miss things sometimes. Yes, yes, I know that's shocking to hear.   But a lot of times I will be shooting video of another plane and just don't see other things that are going on. Until I can figure out how to clone myself I don't have a solution to that problem!!!

I know I've got some with all 3 in the air but I don't know if I have any where they are close enough to make the photo worth while. I'm about 1/2 way done sorting and processing Friday's photos but will take a look this evening and see if there are any that are interesting.

Nice shots! I wish I could find one that good of the top!

A BIG thanks to Brian O, Mike H, Mike D, members of the Love-Air RC Club, and especially everyone behind the scenes working so hard all last week and weekend. WOTR is a class act from top to bottom. The crew from Missouri had a great time!!!

Dino hit the target so perfectly that I saw the explosion knock a few bombs back into the air! The pyro guys & gals nailed the timing. People are going to think Flak Bait was carrying live ordanance!

Friday Photos are done and here:

http://home.comcast.net/~photoheath1...nes_index.html

Saturday and Sunday will be on the same page. I haven't asked Brian but last year he was open to my sending full size originals to pilots/owners. If you see one you want, let me know.

I forgot to add the first time that I'll need photo numbers. The photo number will be something like SEH_3295 and can be found located directly under the photo in the slide show mode.
