https://cimg3.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.rcu...2d75f86bd.jpeg
Itís about time for the 28th Mississippi Afterburner April 11-13. Itís one week earlier than normal because Easter falls on the normal date this year. Iíve had several requests lately so I wanted to go ahead and post it. We have got a lot of good things happening that líll expand on shortly.

So we're having fun and doing some good. We have kept people in school who otherwise would have not financially be able to stay. Thank you! None of the money we take in goes in our pockets.

For those of us at MA last year, Bill Culbertson made the event by doing a noon time show in his MIG17 for us all three days! Good news! I talked to Bill a few days ago and he wants to do it this year!

I was just thinking that's an odd name for a jet..........unless you're Spongebob.

bcovish 01-29-2019 05:37 PM

Come on guys, you know a spatula is not a plane. It is a turbine powered pancake flipper offered by Elite Aerosports

sysiek 01-29-2019 07:23 PM

Maybe this year I could stop by and fly with you guys,just the plan for now,this place is on my list for the last 4 years.

rcmigpilot 01-30-2019 05:52 AM

If you can make it it's well worth the trip. Feels more like a regular day at the flying field rather than a large event. Very relaxed and no drama. And it doesn't hurt that every year somebody brings a really cool full scale. One year it was a P-51, then an L29, then a Mig 15 and last year the Mig 17 doing afterburner passes down the runway was about a cool as it gets. Make the drive, you won't be disappointed.

Ready for a new potato gun paint scheme?https://cimg3.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.rcu...8fcec0b78.jpeg

Super spudder

bcovish 02-08-2019 05:52 PM

I remember it well. Warmed the inside of the hangar. The mayor of Winnona was there and his remark after the shot was, "put more gas in it". LOL

Vernon,

Thanks for posting the info early. It's on my calendar and I am hoping to make it this year, definitely my favorite event of the year. Hopefully I'll be there with some OKC or west Texas guys too.

You ought to submit a request to USAF Public Affairs and see if we can get a Bone or other flyby. I'll volunteer to be the ground liaison officer!

I submitted the request. Looking at the requirements, it was not favorable for us but I still did it. You got any pull?

FlyUtah 02-15-2019 03:53 PM

I'll see what I can do on my end, never know until you ask!

Nothing to lose by asking. Speaking of, you could bring your personal B1!!!

vernonms 02-16-2019 11:29 AM
