    Bill Statler plans to have the wildfire hangar open during the fly in. They have been pretty consistently working weekends, we are all excited to see the airplane fly.

    Any photographers who think they might be attending please contact me.

    We need help capturing the record setters in action for posterity.

    Hey Guys,

    Records week is off to a great start. We had three record attempts on Saturday. Lee Behel attempted the 3km, 15km, and time to climb to 3000m in the Gp-5. What an awesome sounding airplane, V-8s for all!!



    We have 5 more attempts scheduled this week, then the flyin on Saturday 4-19, and the awards dinner Saturday night at 6:00.

    Come out and bring your experimental airplane!!

    Like Nascar in the sky! Kinda surprised it only went 372mph? Still, 372 is moving for any airplane that size!
