Quick view of the Jr and Sr pilots.
« on: July 14, 2018, 07:41:49 PM »
I got a real kick out of young 9 year old Sam Londke.  What a talker.  Made me want to give him a big hug. Very dedicated flyer and really executes his maneuvers. Only  bad part is when he tripped over his feet during the over head eight, (Heck, I do that all the time) and lost one into the ground. Back up with a back up. 

Steve Daly. Very quiet and great concentration. I think he may out fly his older brother in time.  Landings to kill for.

John Daly. Polite, listens, smooth flyer. Great potential and in the next year or so he is going to be a top flyer.

Ben Mills. Wow, Talk about a cool customer in flight. He looked so relaxed and he did his horizontal eights so much better than mine, I am embarrassed. Watch him for the next three years.

Best part is they had their Dads with them with firm guidance and advise. Great teams. Makes wish my Dad was still with me.  I loved every minute of it. H^^ y1 #^ y1

These youngsters are what's keeping this old man going.    I met Ben Mills and his Dad in Springfield at a stunt clinic put on by the late Alan Brickhouse.  Great pair.   Now I look at the pictures of a young man that the first pic of him he had long curly hair.   Hope to meet him before he grows up.   Same wit the Daly clan.   Reading about them and helping each other.   Guess I'm just going to have to get in the car and drive even if I don't fly.

I saw a little of Sam and Benís flight on the live stream. Both have improved a lot since the last time I saw them at fly at the WKSI contest. WOW !

Mike and James are two top dads in my book. 👍🏼👍🏼
