EXPERT WINNER??

I thought Terry Nitsch won expert with his F-100F?

The only Flybaby I remember was in pro-am, and was flown by Cliff Tacie from MD.

If you look at entry #P433 here http://www.franktiano.com/tg2004data.htm it has more info about engine etc.

edited to add; He came in 10th in Pro-am.

I would check the FTE site, or contact Frank, to try and get contact information for the pilot.

Cliff Tacie was flying a Fly Baby in Pro-Am @ Top Gun '04 but, it was this orange and yellow one.

Cliff had a blue one a few years ago so, there's a good chance he's the man you're looking for anyway.

The blue and gray Flybaby in 2002 was mine. It is a model of Mr. Paul Ennis' Blybaby from Salisbury, MD. The model was built from a Walt Moucha Jr kit. I also flew the Orange and Yellow Gary Longcor Flybaby built from a Dynaflkite kit in the Pro Am event in 2004.

I still have both models. Any interest, contact me at [email protected]
