Here is Miss Moo piloting my World Models Extra 330L 60. On her maiden the cow piloted the Extra into a stall and the result was four nights of repairs....... I am giving her another chance though!

Don't have any picks, but I've got a plastic alligator head as the pilot in my four star 40. Pretty crazy looking. That and the covering scheme (black red, skulls and stuff) tend to draw alot of looks at the field, and then everyone kinda takes two steps away..........

Hi Guys - Just thought that since I started this thead a few years ago I'd add another pilot to my squadron. This is my cigar chomping *** kicking taking names Slurry Bomber Pilot. He was a little short so I had to add about 1.5 more inches of torso to him to get him the right height. Seat was hand carved, painted, and weathered. Since these pics were taken he has now also got a 3 point harness system to hold him in A couple of close up shots (Handsome guy that he is Ready to taxi out for another Fire Fighting Mission and a shot of an actual Slurry Drop.

So, does anyone else have any new pilots in the air since this thread started??

OK, I need to apologize. I just decided to go through and look at ALL of the pilots on ALL of the pages and just realized that I posted this same bunch of pictures (and pretty much the same yackity yack) back a page (and a year). I'll have a new pilot flying a Bucker Jungman to post about Spring flying time. Can't WAIT !! Currently -11, wind 20 > 35 mph, wind chill -25 to -40 - YEA, IT"S COLD OUT SIDE!!!

I like mine crazzzzzy....Here's Ozzy in a Harmon Rocket and Bones in an Extra 300s. I find most of the toys at thrift stores. They usually weigh a lil more than the fancy foam pilots,but the Kool factor ,for Me ,outweighs the weight factor.

Thanks imsofaman,I am looking for Pee-Wee Herman next. That has to be the best yet!!! Maybe I'll get lucky.And if I do, I have a Seagull Super Decathlon with a Saito 100 just waiting for ol Pee-Wee.
On a mini funtana,I had Woody, from Toy Story, as My pilot.after I cut him in half I took the legs and tacky glued them to the under carriage!!! It looked like he had kicked thru!! It was funny.. although I crashed it before he became a permanent fixture.
I guess I really am a big kid!!!lol.. Best Regards, TJ
