    This is great stuff Will! Traditionally, we've always managed to be affiliated with photographers who's skills are far more advanced! I'm not a great photographer, what I've been decent at is getting OPPORTUNITY to get some stuff that turned out to be historically valuable.

    I'm so happy that that tradition will continue with Will's further participation with aafoi...

    Question, off topic, what do you think about changing the name of the site to "INSIDE AIR RACING" I have owned that domain name forever... I choose aafo because back then, search engines used alphabetic as part of the algorithm in search results.. I also planned and did a lot of coverage of "all aviation" subjects... the racing part actually happened after my initial "breaking story" about the Spruce Goose..

    Anyway, been thinking about it for a while, I can set up redirercts so that anyone who types in aafo.com wiill arrive at raceplanes.com

    Until I figure a better way to do it, I'm going to post up-to-date what's going on at Miss America Hangar here... I welcome you guys that know how better than me to share on FB

    The coincidence that Pylon1 Mark Kallio is teaching at the FAA Academy located in OK City and Doc Hisey is based out of there... annnd that I could get Mark involved, reluctantly at first, understandably due to his bride's current cancer battle but on the story now ... I'm blessed!

    Mark sold all his camera gear, mine's been sitting in the camera bag since Reno 2020.. Shipping gear to him so he can better document the progress in OK City..

    This story has blossomed beyond my wildest expectations, the fact I can reunite with old friends/associates... Getting Mark involved again with me is priceless! I learned MUCH from him, our subsequent competition inspired me to do better.. I can safely say, I owe Markers a debt of gratitude!

    This is going to be FUN!!!!!!!!!

    Wayne I’ll gladly pass your info on through FB - the initial post I put up a few days ago got some good hype (and continues to do so!) Can only imagine the hype when current spy shots start coming around.

    You're too kind Mr Wayners - the feeling is mutual. I would say a more, but as you're well aware, I have to leave in a few minutes to visit someone at Wiley Post Airport with a story to share.

    Oh, and you're 110% spot on when you said... this is going to be fun

    That was fun!

    How about a teaser pic

    You know, the one that almost hides what's goin' on... look close, you might see something new.

    All I can say is wow!!
    Oh boy do we have the right guy on the job there in OK City!

    Just got off the phone with Mark, we can't tell all yet but going over the interview, he knew to ask questions about stuff I never heard of! Thanks to Mark, we're going to really do this story justice!

    Thanks Mark Looking forward to a fun next few months. Finally something to get the people talking!

    Off the teaser pic, can't say I see anything different, yet. Would wager it's basic annual time since they haven't flown it since November, and then the refinements/improvements from there on out. Compared to the RRIII prep, MA already has a lot of the hard work done. If the switch over to a tube happens, the infrastructure is already in place with RRIII's scoop/doghouse on the plane. Very curious to see what else is on the table - hopefully some tricks borrowed from the Super Stangs that RRIII didn't have at the time

    The one thing I'd like you to do when you post about the thread, don't copy paste the message there, put in link to the page it's on here... Zukerberg does not need the extra ad revenue we sure do !

    "I want to win RENO"

    I can assure you, unless he breaks his arm or something, Brent "Doc' Hisey WILL BE THE PILOT OF MISS AMERICA AT RENO 2022

    Rumors to the contrarily are just that, rumors...

    I really can't give too much away, but I will say that Doc & I discussed a "tube conversion". This is not a consideration for Miss A as unlike the Voodoo, Strega, or Dago - Miss A is not and never will be a dedicated single-purpose race plane. Doc has a cross country flight to make to get to Reno which is a lot different than the short hop from somewhere in California. It just wouldn't be able to make that flight with a reasonable margin of safety. This won't be a problem though... secret stuff even I didn't know about is brewing. Stay tuned 😉
