Both. It's the new "Boomercanard". It can loop within its own length, forward under power, backwards from a vertical slide. You used to do that full scale back in the day didn't you?

Goose, I see a Cortex in your plane. What's the JR Ring Gyro for?

the JR gyro is eye candy from the past mostly, but its hooked to the nose wheel, and it works pretty well since I'm such a crappy pilot, I need all the help I can get. LOL..

My full scale aircraft is down for an engine rebuild, but my hope is that I get it finished in time for R66 to fly out.. I will have to let you guys know.. I will be flying to Galesburg for the stearman fly for a couple days first.. IF I am able to fly out, I will need to coordinate with Jim for a Hangar for a day or two if able.. I would rather hanger it if able.weather depending... It can share with the jets if needed since its high wing, you can put planes all around it.

Lewis, it's always an honor to have you attend, fly, and entertain at "RT 66 Jets". If I'm not mistaken you've attended every year.

Pre-registration announcement:

Free Jet-A fuel donation just announced by our host "Litchfield Municipal Airport".

A generous, but limited quantity will be available on a first come pre-registered pilot priority of 5 gallons per pilot. This is Jet-A worth approximately half of your $45 pre-registration fee. So, get your pre-registration in immediately, as I will keep track of the order received.

Click on the event website below and go to "Printable Registration Form" to print out your form.

Pre-registration deadline Aug. 25, only 30 days left. Do it now so you don't forget. Click www.route66jets.com , then "Printable Registration Form".

Important Host Hotel Info:

Name change: Previously owned by "Holiday Inn Express", the location is now "Baymont Inn". (Please ignore the hotel locations on the airport website map, as it has not been updated.)

The previous "Holiday Inn Express" location has always been our host hotel for our reserved block of discounted rooms. That facility is now owned by "Baymont Inn". We WILL still be using the same location for our host hotel as always. "Holiday Inn Express" has built a new facility close by, but with higher rates.

"Baymont Inn" reserved rate is $79 if staying at least two nights. You must mention "Route 66 Jets" to receive this rate.
1405 West Hudson Drive, Litchfield, IL 217-324-2500 http://www.baymontinns.com/hotels/il...hotel-overview

Again, we are using the same location, different ownership ("Baymont Inn").
