Default Some Skymaster GoPro fun in OK

Here is a little something to kill some time today. A few videos I did over the winter with my GoPro on my F4 and F16.

Thanks Wojtek.. Yeah I like that one too. In that same vid if you watch in 1080 you can see a little smoke come off the tire on landing too. Kinda cool. I am trying to figure out where to mount the GoPro on the flash now.

Very nice flights and "camera work". Where is your field located in Oklahoma?

Thanks,
Ed

Do you mind posting a picture of how your gopro is mounted? Some great vids and would love to do some inflight vids myself.

Thanks Ed.
We are located just outside of Tulsa in Broken Arrow OK.
Club name is American Turf Flyers. We hosted the Field of Dreams Fan Fly for years back in the day. @ 400' x 40' with 100' run off on each some jets can be a little tight but most work just fine.

I asked because the field and entry road looked very familiar. I used to attend the Field of Dreams event from 1992 to about 1995. Kent Landefeld was the CD. I really enjoyed the event. In fact I had one of my Yellow A-4's go into the potato field off to the pilots left (north I think). I was in the landing pattern on final and the plane snapped as I slowed and made the turn to final. Nice thing about the potato field was that it had just been plowed and the plane landed on one of the high spots of the plowed field, nose first. It was not damaged so I cleaned the engine and intake out and continued flying. On another jet rally at the field one of the guys had his F-15 quit on final. It landed in the corn field to the right (south) and since the corn had not yet been harvested it was covered by the corn as it hit the ground. It took us about 3 hours to find it and we only found it when one of he guys hit the fuse with one of his legs. I also remember Tom Dodgedon (spelling?) and Gus Hudson flying their BVM F-86's in formation. They really did a wonderful job.

Really liked the event AND the people of Tulsa.

Thanks a lot. It was a great event, I remember several planes making corn field landings.. haha . I used to fly my old Byron F-16 and a really under powered P-80 at that event. Kent is a great guy. I just saw him in TX a few weeks ago at the Mount Pleasant jet fly. We have been trying to figure out a way to bring a jet fly back to the Tulsa Area but I am afraid our place is too small to attract too many turbine guys but we may have a few connections at some of the surrounding small airports, so I guess we will see what happens.

I agree, Kent is a really nice guy and he and the club were always wonderful hosts. If you can find a site, I will come (you know the saying, "if you build it they will come").
