OK, they want pitchers under one meg, so here's smaller ones.

OK, so I can't do streaming video on an I Pad, but I can still take & develop film photos.

Glad you guys got to fly.  Was there a height marker?   Looks like the young lad was not used to 100+ MPH plane or the pull of the heavy jet. D>K

Were they disqualified? If not why mention it.

I'm guessing the remark was "tongue in cheek"........

I'm just kidding about the scores.  There were no scores.  Winning was defined as not damaging the airplane.

Ed Brzys getting ready to go.  Ed is an experienced flyer of this jet.

Our Bomb Squad Officer showing me has best stuff.  The DynaJet was scarier.

The trick is to get charged with all that but only given a warning.

Samuel is 12 years old.  He flew a Nelson Slow at a higher speed and did well at it.

Looking at the later pictures, you have a natural height marker in the back ground,  it is the hedge row.  In the once available circle in Topeka, it was the 6 foot chain link fence. D>K
