    Frank Tiano Welcomes Everybody to Florida Jets 2009


     

     
    While a good portion of the country is still shivering from the winter cold Frank Tiano fights back by  inviting 146 or so jet pilots to sunny Florida to fly jets, enjoy the sun, and just have a great time. Florida Jets is a yearly event put on by Frank Tiano as a showcase of all things Jets. Florida Jets 2009 was held March 5-8 in Lakeland, Fl. After facing horrible weather for the 2008 get together at Florida Jets many pilots were a bit apprehensive about attending again in 2009. And with a major downturn in the economy many were worried that the 2009 event might have a hard time bringing in participants. Luckily the RC Jet Jocks decided to not listen to the economists or weathermen. Florida Jets 2009 saw 146 registered pilots with more planes than could be counted and approximately 3,400 paying spectators over the 4 day event, with 1,640 of those attending on Saturday alone. While some vendors cancelled because of the economy, Florida Jets still have a good number of vendors attend to present their wares to the public and pilots. Bob Violett Models, RC International, and Jet Central are just a few of the names that had tent space at Florida Jets. Smaller vendors such as Fisher Fuel Products, SKS Video, Zurich Sunglasses, Avatar Homes, and others were also on hand at the event.
     
    Florida Jets 2009 was held at the Lakeland Linder Airport located in Lakeland, Fl. The location is an active full scale airport that is open and handling aircraft traffic throughout the event. However, Frank does a lot of work to ensure that RC Jet operations do not interfere with full scale aircraft operations in any way. There was only one time where the full scale airport operation conflicted with the RC jets. The runway used for the RC jets was temporarily shutdown so that a full scale jet could land on the active runway. Operations were shut down for about 15 minutes and flying started right back up the big jet landed. Frank and his safety crew did an outstanding job of maintaining excellent communications with the Airport operations in order to make this a very smooth operation. Frank even arraigned for a fuel truck from the airport to visit the model pilots every day in order for them to top off their fuel cans used to fuel their scale with. I spoke to several pilots that expressed thanks for Frank taking care of details such as that, which helped to make this a great event.
     
    Many Florida natives told me that the weather in March can sometimes be "iffy" with it being quite windy most of the time. Frank must have traded in a few favors with the weather guys because the weather for Florida Jets 2009 was simply beautiful. Maybe a tad chilly in the mornings, but the high temps easily made up for that as they were in the 80's for all 4 days. There were some partially cloudy times over the 4 days, but for the most part the skies where clear blue and great for flying. The winds also held off and were not over 10 mph at any point that I could notice. It was just about perfect flying weather, although I would be hard pressed to find better conditions than those that were at the event.
     
    Having never been to Florida Jets before I wasn't sure quite what to expect. Once I was there it was pretty easy to figure out. Florida Jets is first and foremost a Fly-in. The pilots all come to the event to fly their jets, greet old friends, and make new friends among the other pilots. Pulling in to the Florida Jets location at the airport I was taken by the amount of organization of the event. On hand were many event workers to take entrance fees, direct traffic, or just answer questions in general. The event is held on the west side of the Lakeland Linder Airport. For the event the jets use a taxiway for the full scale runway to land and take off from. The flight line is separated from the spectator area by a chain link fence that is manned to ensure that no unauthorized people enter into the flight line. Directly behind the the chain link fence many folding chairs are provided for spectators to use as they watch the flying. The area is set up so that all of the pilot's pits tent are accessible by the public. As I worked my way around the site I noticed that the pilots, family, and crews sure didn't mind taking time out to speak with those spectators as they roamed through the tents admiring the jets.
     
    The event could not have been put on without the people that worked this event. The majority of the workers for this event came from the Polk County Imperial RC Club. Members of this club manned most of the jobs at the event that included working the flight line, manning the crash cart, picking up trash, manning the radio impound area,  and any other of the dozens of jobs that were needed to make this event such a success. Probably the most important, and easily the most visible of these workers were those manning the flight line. The flight line was run in a very professional manner that helped keep the event fun as well as safe. The flight line was set up with 8 pilot stations setup with numerous starting pads setup to allow the jets to be started. Pilots were lined up 3 and 4 deep at times waiting for their chance to fly. Once a jet was ready to fly it was started and then was on hold until permission to taxi out for take off. The event workers did an excellent job ensuring that the runway was always clear for takeoff and landing. For each pilot that was in the air a event crew worker was nearby. All workers were equipped with two-way radios in order to talk to each other. The pilots would indicate when they were ready for gear passes or coming in to land. The event worker would check with others to ensure that the pattern was clear for the pilot. This system worked very well and had the flight line running in a smooth manner all 4 days. While not used by many there was an radio impound area set up to manage and 72 Mhz radios that we at the event. A total of 12 radios were turned in to the impound this year. Because of the cost of maintaining an impound year Frank stated that next year Florida Jets will be a 2.4 Ghz event only.
     
    The event was simply incredible and every pilot I spoke to all seemed to agree, Florida Jets 2009 was easily the best Florida Jets ever. From what I saw I would tend to agree with them. The flying was incredible, the weather was gorgeous, and the crowds and pilots alike seemed all enjoy the event. Frank deserves a great pat on the back for putting together such a great event.
     
    The best part of Florida Jets was simply the flying. For almost 4 days straight the skies were filled with jets ranging from Sport Jets to incredible scale jets to small electric jets. As I covered the event I was kept almost constantly busy shooting pictures and video of the jets flying at the event. So instead of my rambling on, let's get to what everybody wants to see. Below are the event as I saw it. Scroll down to view the event, or use the Navigation Menu on this page.
     
    So, with no further delay I present you with Frank Tiano's Florida Jets 2009.....
     
     
    The one thing there was plenty of throughout Florida Jets was flying. There were planes in the air as soon as the flight line was opened up until it closed at 5:30 p.m. each day. And most of the time all 8 pilot stations were full with planes waiting behind them to get in the air. I spent most of the day on the flight line getting pictures to share here. I tried to contact every pilot I could in order to get information on their planes, but because of the hustle and bustle of the flightline I wasn't able to catch up with every pilot. I have included information on all of those that I could contact, but for those that I couldn't catch up to I do apologize. However, I have included pictures for as many planes as I could even if I don't have their information.

    Pictures are great, but nothing seems to capture the flying better than video. I put together as much video as I could from the event. Whenever possible I tried to get individual pilot's flight, which are listed below. In addition, I've edited out each day's flying in several parts for each day.

    Frank sure knows how to make sure the visitors to his events get their money's worth. On Friday and Saturday a Noon Time Show was put on to showcase RC Jets. The amazing thing about this show is that is put on completely from pilots already attending the event. The demo flights from the event included a BVM Electric Jets demo, a demo from the German pilots attending, RC International demo, Jet Central F-15's demo, RC Jet Models Demo, Craig Gottschang's A-10 Warthog, Lewis Patton's F-15 and Raul Lazano's Ultra Lightning. Below are video clips of all of these flights from the Noon Time Show. Oh yeah,  make sure you check out Captain Salami's incredible flight!!
     
     
     
    After the noon show on Saturday all of the planes participating in Florida Jets were lined up on the runway, which was then opened up for the public. This let the spectators from the event to get a close-up view of the planes, as well as meet the pilots as well. In addition, the winners for Sponsor's awards and the Critic's Choice awards were chosen at this time.

    While Frank Tiano may be the force behind getting Florida Jets together it's the people with jets in the air that make Florida Jets such a great event. Here are the people behind getting the jets in the air. And as you can see it's more than just the pilots. They are the pilots, pit crews, spotters, flight line workers, announcers, videographers, manufacturers, vendors, friends, family, your humble reporter, and even Bob Violetts's four legged friend! These are the people that made Florida Jets 2009 the best ever.

     
     
     
    Of course the biggest part of Florida Jets took place in the air. But there was plenty going on behind the flight line too. Working through the crowd and talking to spectators it was easy to see that they were have a great time attending the event. Spectators got to talk to vendors and pilots alike, and the pilots all seemed to enjoy taking time from their flying to talk with them. Of course everybody needed to eat, and trust me that there was plenty of good food on hand. Spectators at Florida Jets ranged from moms and dads to kids to man's best friend!
     
     
    "Opps Moments"
     
    While nobody likes to see a pilot have a mishap with their plane they do happen. And like a train wreck, there's just something about those moments that we just can't seem to look away from. While not trying to embarrass any pilots, here are some of the "oops moments" from Florida Jets 2009. For the most part these moments were the result of simple incidents such as landing gear not deploying, nose gear collapse on touchdown, wind getting under the wing and tipping a plane over on the runway, flame-outs where the pilot couldn't make it back to the runway, or other similar circumstances.
     
    The organizers for Florida Jets 2009 did an outstanding job of taking care of these moments. On hand was a "crash cart" that was used for recovering planes that had problems. The cart was usually operated by Arthur (Arty) Mundell from the Polk County Imperial R/C Club. He did an outstanding job of getting pilots out to their downed aircraft and getting them safely back to the pit area. As with all members of the Imperial R/C Club, Arty deserves a big hand for doing an outstanding job of helping to make Florida Jets 2009 such a great event.
     
     
     


    Larry Kramer had a very interesting "oops moment". During his last flight of the day he had a bird strike with his plane. But the funny thing is that he didn't know that he had a bird strike until he landed his plane. As it taxied up to him he discovered what you see above. A huge chunk of the canopy missing, "guts" on the rest of the canopy, and bird feathers on his antenna!

     


    This F-18 had a pretty bad day. In speaking with the pilot he felt that he had a bad servo as he never had very good control of the plane. After takeoff the pilot struggled with keeping the plane under control, until on the opposite side of the field the lost total control of the plane and it spun in. Here are the last few seconds of the flight before the crash

     


    This incident as by far the worst of the entire event. This was a mid-air collision between two jets flying the active pattern. Both pilots were flying the pattern of the field, they simply tried to occupy the same airspace at the same time. The two planes involved where Joe Lewis' F-86 and Ken McSpadden's MB-339. I was in the process of taking pictures of the F-86 and had taken my camera off of it a second before the collision happened. I was able to get the camera back on the scene immediately after the collision and catch most of the debris in the air. In the second picture in the sequence above you can see the F-86 with the MB-339 just coming into frame. They collided a second or two later.

     
     
    While Florida Jets is first and foremost a jet fly-in, that doesn't mean there weren't a few awards to give out. The event is set up so that event sponsors also sponsor an award. Each sponsor chooses the winner for their award. The only real rule for these awards are that each award winner must have flown during the event! The judging for the awards took place after the mid-day show on Saturday. All of the planes were lined up on the runway which was then opened up for the spectators on hand to come out and view the planes.
     
    There were many outstanding models at Florida Jets, so the sponsors had their work cut out for them to pick winners from so many choices. Listed below are those winners.

    This was an outstanding event this year and RC Universe did a fantastic job with event coverage! Thank you for your efforts and hope to see other event coverage throughout the year. It should prove to be both beneficial and inspirational to our segment of radio controlled aviation! Frank Tiano deserves a big pat on the back too for a magnificant venue and promoting our hobby. Support from the vendors is a big plus too. -SkyKing
