Mega turnout.. had fun.. no pictures ! :O

Crowds that size still make me a little nervous, and I was a bit edgy from being at a new field.. and the coffee

Had some real good flights after things were winding down and it was a a bit more relaxed...Still getting used to the new further back CG on the D7.. but I am liking the slower speeds on landings...

It was a great event! I really liked seeing the SPAD and the D VII together in the air.

Keep an eye out on this thread, I'll be posting some photos. Thanks to everyone who attended, I don't think we could have done any better for a one day event.

Thank you Cedar Rapids Skyhawks for hosting a great warbird flyin. Its obvious a great amount of work went into the event. What a great place to fly, watch some great warbirds, and how about 5 four engine bombers. Can't forget Jeff's Corsair that will make your ears bleed on a low pass. Awesome!!!!!
The "Best Pilots" crew had a wonderful time.

See you on the flightline.

Congrats to the award winners at Warbirds Over Iowa. The best flight award went to Chris Mayer with his Top Flite P-51. He had lots of flights on the plane, and it showed in the way he flew it all day. It looked great in the air doing low passes and flying with the other fighters.

The Best Scale Appearance award went to Jeff Queensberry with his 110" span Hawker Sea Fury. It was impressive in size, and looked great flying throughout the day with Alex Farwell's Sea Fury that made the show.

Pilot's Choice went to Steve Forrest with his 141" span B-24. Everyone enjoyed watching Steve put the big bomber through the paces as the smoke trails from all four engines gave it a realistic look. Everyone who looked at the big plane was amazed at how skinny the wing tips looked, and how Steve handled the plane in the air. Steve's formation flight with Lyle Vasser's B-24 was also impressive and no doubt contributed to some of the votes he received.
