Re: Wingham Jets 2013

Another great Wingham Jets. The weather was touch and go a few times but that did not deter us in the least. Lots of flying all weekend. Thanks to Blair, his family, and all others involved to continue what Angus has started. Looking forward to next year.

PS. Thanks for voting my F4 as best electric.

Re: Wingham Jets 2013

What a great event! A big thanks to Blair and his family and all the volunteers..."staff" that made it work so well. I had a blast and it was great to meet so many other jet fans.

I was so very impressed with Ali's flying, even if it did leave me feeling like a bit hamfisted. And what a nice chap. He is a true gentlemen of the hobby.

See you all again next year for sure!

Re: Wingham Jets 2013

Just a spectacular event, I hope it continues for many years. I had a blast, what a great group of people to hang and fly with.

And to watch Ali fly is just an absolute joy! Very inspiring and such a humble man who is there to help everyone too!

Thank you Blair, Angus and ALL the volunteers who helped to make it happen.

Re: Wingham Jets 2013

Thanks again to Blair, his family and all of the volunteers and great people in general that continuously make this an event to look forward to. Even though I was only a spectator this year, I had a blast nonetheless. Here are a few pictures from above the event.

Re: Wingham Jets 2013

Yes, thank you Blair for an excellent event! You and your team did an outstanding job and I had a great time flying and socializing with all the flyers & groundcrew. It was nice to meet some new pilots as well. The top notch flying was a pleasure to watch considering the wind conditions...great group of pilots! I have a bunch of good photos of pilots and their jets that I'll post later today. Look forward to next year. Thanks again.

Re: Wingham Jets 2013

thanks to everyone that attended, from pilot to spectator. Ali as our guest pilot went so far and beyond, he not only put on an eye popping display of flying skills but helped so many people myself included with setups from turbine to gear to everything that ever troubled us with our models. he's a class act indeed. we'll be singing his praises for a long time to come. it was great to have our founder make it to the show, Angus is truly one of a kind and still missed everytime we head up to wingham to burn some kero. last but not least our fearless leader Blair howkins. blair took on a big task taking over the wingham reins from angus and did a fantastic job with the event. again thanks to everyone that made it to the show. see you next year.

A$$ viper.
