Default Ames Multi-Engine Fly-In is Back!

Forced to take a year off to rehab a flood-ravaged field, we are pleased to announce we are back in better shape than ever!

Saturday, September 8, is the big day.

Award-winning BBQ, more than $1,000 in prizes, unique trophies, and a relaxed friendly atmosphere guaranteed to make it worth the drive.

The field is smooth and green: 340 ft of PetroMat and 630 ft total runway, unlimited and un-cluttered flyover area.

Because multi-engine pilots are so distinguished and rare, we have expanded the eligible to Warbirds and Classics, but multi-engines will still be celebrated and specially privileged.

Landing fee of $15 per pilot. Prize-winning BBQ included.

That Sunday, September 9, is rain-out day, or just stay and fly some more and eat leftovers, if you're having too much fun to leave!

Lots of nearby motels. Field feels remote, but is only 5 paved miles off the Interstate. See flyer on our website:

AMA Sanctioned, #1833

I hope you can join us.

Mark Taylor, CD

Yesterday, we flew a couple of sorties with all four B-17's at a friend's field in Radcliffe.

Hope to do the same (or better) Sept 8

7 day forecast (for whatever that's worth!) is for high of 75 with 5-10 knot north winds next Saturday. Then about the same Sunday.

That would be awesome!

If we get enough attendance, I promise I'll bring out Frenesi II

Saturday's forecast is still perfect:

75 degrees, light NNW wind

Wear a jacket for the mornings

Master groundskeeper and club MVP Kent has given us the flattest, greenest field ever.

North and South views. Hope to see ya there!

Coming right up!

We had a great event: 26 pilots, 150 spectators, not many crashes

Cross-wind Saturday, but Sunday so perfect we were exhausted by evening.

I will post some of my amateur pics, but I expect the pro's (Lloyd and Starla) to have their select finest to me soon.


Thanks,


mt

Sixteen engines flew simultaneously several times

And yes, all dropped bombs.

Why are these guys making the same idiotic hand signal?

And why are they both smiling so hard???
