    This was the highlight of my week, last week, watching all the awesome coverage flow into my newsfeed on FB, so cool!

    I noticed you were doing a lot of test flights in Race 44, who flew for the record attempts?

    I was begging him on Sunday to make a run next year as he was fueling up to leave. I have already gotten some emails implying guys are laying plans. So freaking cool!!!

    I sure hope you do! I was hoping to this year, but school kind of gets in the way...
    Next year hopefully I'll be able to fly myself down for it!

    Just so everyone understands the accomplishment of the o-3000m TTC record for C-1-b of a time of 1:59.9 sec, that was only the second (2nd) time in aviation history that a piston/ propeller plane has done that TTC in under 2:00. At one point the climb rate was over 8,500 fpm. It was such a privilege to be there to see the setting of these records. The first piston/prop plane was Rare Bear (Lyle Shelton) in 1:31.
