April 10th, 2020… Beautiful day for flyin’! Jack Carter Sr. and his grand-kids check out Eric’s pile of models.

Dan came in through the gate with his dues-in-hand, paid up… and then started flying Boyd’s old Apprentice like he knew what he was doing! … I had two batteries with me and Pauly had several more… and a charger… and Dan stuck around, flying that thing, even in the BLOWING wind, until it was time to lock the gate… about noon-time. He is learning to be a good pilot… I expect we will see him out there often!

Jack Sr. ... proud of those grand-kids!

Pauly! … Bam!

Pauly's nitro plane had a spot of trouble...
Pauly’s nitro plane had a spot of trouble… … see the picture: BEFORE… and AFTER!

Pauly’s nitro model was a little small… and it looked REALLY small as it flew away from us, headed towards town! I think he was trying to trim it but then it got a bit too far away. I am always telling the newbies: “You gotta keep it close… You can’t fly ’em if you can’t see ’em.” I think it was far, enough, away that Pauly lost his orientation. I understand that the model made quite a CRATER! … it took THREE searches to find the wreckage; it was WAY out there!

David Duke enjoys flyin' those big gassers... always a great show!
