Thread: Patriot Demo Team

    I wasn't present this year, but judging by the pictures, I have no problem with the pass. I think to compare racing to airshow acts is, as Randy stated, Apples to Oranges. If we don't want airshow acts to fly low, then Sean Tucker, Kent Pietsch and several others would be a pretty boring show.

    JCP would've had a fit if he ever saw Bob Hoover, Bob Love or Bill Fornof perform.

    I'm sure he did.
    I remember being at his parent's place one time when they were still in Calif.
    Bob Love showed some home movies, his copies of gun camera footage from the Korean war.
    I was just a teenager wannabe and flew up with guys from Chino.
    Bill Fornoff didn't survive low level aerobatics so I don't know how you want to factor that one in.

    Yeah,
    I'm sure if Bill had been higher the wing wouldn't have come off. What was I thinking?

    I don't know JCP personally, but I have to imagine given the place, people, and toys he grew up around up there, he has probably observed more high performance flying and pilots than many of us.

    But let's be fair -- he wasn't having a cow over simply guys in aerobatic routines flying low.

    He was specifically talking about the possible un-necessary risk posed by such a routine at Reno this year, due to it being under such scrutiny the year after the Ghost.

    That it is far from meaning that he's someone who would be agitated by such a routine at other times and places.

    Alright you two...Hacker, JCP...break it up. If you keep agreeing with each other and defending each other's right to say things....chaos is going to break out. I WILL NOT STAND FOR A MUTUAL ADMIRATION SOCIETY GROWING BETWEEN THE TWO OF YOU!

    LOL Big... Randy, I'm glad you posted that... your thoughts mirror mine and I had decided to stay out of it.

    I think we all understand where JCP was coming from, I tend to agree with him, in this case... but thank you for clarifying!
