Top Gun 2009

I was filthy, exhausted, but probably the most excited person at Top Gun - I was honored by Mike Selby's F-111 team, by receiving a team T-shirt - felt like a 5 year old at Christmas....lol

Another new friend I made this year - Bogo, who is from Slavania. He's on the Selby F-111 Crew

This past week, Bill and I went down to Lakeland (about an hour from here) to the 21st annual Top Gun RC Air Show - an international, invitation only RC Scale competition, that brings the best of the best to exhibit their skills.
I got to meet a lot of new friends from all over the world, and had the TIME of my life! :)
I learned a little more about what Bill's role as an outline judge for the static part of the competition is all about, and witnessed perfection in RC scale airplane building.

I took WAY too many photos to post, but wanted to share a few with you.
