We are less than three weeks out from the event, today I did some prep work at the Airport cutting the pit and set up areas for the for the first time this season.
Also got a few flights in on my trusty FB Dolphin and maidened my new Sebart Mini Avanti S...all in all a good day at the airport!

Due to Covid-19 causing many of the "Big" Jet events to be canceled, we have decided to extend the fun at the Oc-Turbo fest.
At the moment there are some guys who plan on making Wednesday the arrival set-up up day, of course flying will be permitted.
If you would like to come early let Jack or myself know and we can make it happen!

Oh Dom, Bob won't be happy that his famous sleeping photo has resurfaced, and I wish I could delete that stupid photo of me!...
What am I holding, a fishing pole,...
You know what they say about paybacks! I might have to dig out your photo from the early KY jets!

It was all in fun, I was exhausted after leaving the house at 3am to get to the event early.
I would love to have that model for an X45!

A reminder for those wanting to camp, we have plenty of potable water available; however, we can not guarantee electric hookup for all, so if you need power you are advised to bring a generator.
