I wonder if Frankie puts some sort of black out on Top Gun. You never see any photos of the event until it is either over or nearly over. I posted the same question over in the Scale Forum.

What would be a good guess on the average weight of the planes at Top Gun this year?

Pictures? How about a video. This is the Corsair of Team Vought, being flown By Dino DiGorgio on a test flight this after noon. Near the end of the flight, the Moki threw a push rod and it went forward into the prop, taking the back half of one blade off!!! As you can see, Dino landed the plane and we were able to make repairs. The rocker adjusting screw and lock nut were found still laying in the bottom of the cowl when we took it off!!!

Here is a wonderful picture taken by David Hart of Big Hog sitting on the runway after we had run the repaired engine.

Hi All,
Well I would just Like to thank Barry and his guys for a great time at Top Gun,myself and Nigel received great Texan hospitality and we will remember it for a long time to come.

Trust me to end up half way through the trip catching a fricen cold,so the 90 -100 heat did not go to well the snotty cold

Here are a few more shots of us and the planes.
Already making plans for 2013, and Yes John, more than happy to help out with the new Bolt

Cheers GB
