Default RT 66 Jets 2013

8th Annual RT 66 Jets

OK, guys and gals, it's time once again for all the Route 66 RC club members and all newcomers to make plans and reservations for the 8th Annual RT 66 Jets at the Litchfield Municipal Airport, Litchfield, IL event September 5-8. Our host hotel is once again the Holiday Inn Express which is offering a discount rate of $79 if you mention RT 66 Jets when making reservations. See the attached RT 66 website for more particulars on hotels, restaurants, as well as pre-registration info.

If it wasn't for JWM being the same time I would definitely be going! This is an awesome place to fly and the atmosphere is great. All the flying you can take from sun up to sun down. Perfect!

RT 66 Jets is pleased to announce that Ron Colbert has stepped up as Asst. CD. Due to personal circumstances David "Goose" Brawley has stepped aside, but still hopes to be able to attend and help out as he always does. Ron has attended every RT 66 event, if I remember correctly, so is well known amoung our regulars. Thank you Ron for watching my back.

I plan to come IF I dont crash all my jets by then.

Request: Could all major changes be posted here? IE: No free fuel after all.
Jerry is a #1 guy and I know he wont let us down!

Thanks!

Sure, Dave we'll be more than happy to CD your event, (for a SMALL fee), LOL.

Joey, if you slow fly they don't break up so badly. Easier to repair. And just to be clear, NO free fuel. Wasn't aware you we're having a problem last year. Anything you ever need help with just speak up. Jet guys are the best to lend a hand, fuel, parts, whatever. Appreciate you're confidence in me. I'll do my best to live up to it and keep everyone informed. Hope you and your family are able to attend again this year.

Jerry my wife said she'll take her waiver test at R66 if you agree to let her fly the sr71 afterwards LOL.

Hope to be there this year.

That pic of my wife and I, the sun is very bright in our faces hence the weird expressions. Did you take that pic? I had it on my desktop with the heads cut off all winter!

Nicos, we would be honored if you could visit us all the way from Cyprus some day. Meeting and being around all the foreign contestants at the JWM 2011 in Dayton, OH was an unforgetable pleasure. Below is a photo of a variety of F-16's from several different countries at that event.

Looking down the the very relaxed canopy line. RT 66 is a very laid back, take your time, fly all you want event.

This particular American flag in the foreground was flown in combat over Afghanistan onboard a B-1B bomber of the 37th Expeditionary Bomb Squadron in December 2009. Thanks goes out to Mark Basel for acquisition of this flag.
