Post subject: CAF HQ Fly Day

Wow, what a day I had Saturday. The CAF had their first Fly Day at headquarters. The West Texas Wing and The Desert Squadron participating along with a local R/C club. Our Squadron had all three of our plane in it. The PT-26, Stearman, and Stinson L-5.
I would like to share some pictures and videos. I got to ride over in the PT 26 and fly back in the L-5. Still got the smile on my face.

Outstanding stuff! That guy really did grease that landing, didn't he?

How hard was it to fight the urge to get in a mock dogfight with the others?

I don't know how a pt-26 would do against a stearman or L-5, but when you see planes coming up on your 6............I did kinda feel like Goose in Top Gun. Wink

Next Weekend I will be a backseater flying to the Airshow in Burnet, TX
