Default *** Top Gun 2011, RCU Onsite Coverage ***

One of my favorite events to cover every year has got to be Top Gun. I love being here to see some of the best in scale aircraft around. And 2011 is definitely not a disappointment. There is a great mix of scale aircraft that have been here before as well as new aircraft being seen at Top Gun for the first time. The first day is done and it's already been a great event. The weather was a bit warm today (ok, it was HOT!!!) with temps in the 90's and high humidity. In addition the winds were up a bit today blowing in as a cross wind most of the day. But for the most part the pilots had little trouble dealing with the crosswind.

Today's flights consisted of the two Pro-Am classes (Pro-Am Pro and Pro-Am Sport). There was definitely some great looking planes and some great flying as well.

Here are some pictures from Day One of Top Gun 2011
