I would guess the guy, in picture # 1, laying on the table is from a northern latitude.

Here is a few pictures I took today. Then my phone battery died.






Had to put the kids in on the candy drop. Just can't figure out how to rotate the pictures. The B-17 was nice, as was Texas Guard F-16. Sorry, but that's all I got. A lot of really nice planes out there today.

It was an incredible topgun this year had so much fun! Looking forward to seeing the scores later today.

On a sad note I saw more $$$ and very nice planes crash then I have ever seen at an event. Must have been well over 100 grand into the ground.

Do you think there is any particular reason for this?

Most seemed to be system failure. A yellow aircraft f-18 twin lost an engine on take off and crashed. A twin engine f-14 experienced elevator flutter that ripped a vertical stab off and crashed. A few p-47s went in after engine failures and one mid air with a cub ( all fixable but the cub was destroyed. I f-9f Panther had the battery regulator fail and lost all electrical power and crashed. And the former topgun champion Bristol beau fighter crashed after clipping a wing on a practice torpedo pass witch kill and engine and snapped as he turned final into the bad engine. It was totally destroyed. That's the one I cane remember but there were more.

big, did the f-14 had stab flutter? I thought it was the rudder that fluttered causing it to fail, just wondering since I have one. Thanks

Just to be clear the F14 went in from RUDDER FLUTTER! not anything else. I was standing on the flight line spotting when it happened. Rudder fluttered then the vertical fin mounting spars snapped.

Fender he had an old set up on the rudders. I hear they have a double carbon rod set up now. His setup had a single servo screw into some wood for the linkage attachment and even that had allot of play.

It was a great topgun had allot of fun!!
