Post subject: CAF HQ Fly Day

Wow, what a day I had Saturday. The CAF had their first Fly Day at headquarters. The West Texas Wing and The Desert Squadron participating along with a local R/C club. Our Squadron had all three of our plane in it. The PT-26, Stearman, and Stinson L-5.
I would like to share some pictures and videos. I got to ride over in the PT 26 and fly back in the L-5. Still got the smile on my face.


On the ramp at the Desert Squadron Hanger.


Getting lined up for takeoff


Takeoff in the PT-26 KODO. Sorry for some of the jerkyness I was trying to spot our wingmen. (click on the pic and the video will start)


Stearman forming up off the left wing


L-5 coming up on the right wing


Stearman off the right wing. (I'm not a pro at taking videos in the air sorry)
click on the pic


Landing at KMAF. My pilot made one of the best landing I can remember. He left the tail up to get clearence between us and the ones behind us.
click on the pic










Takeoff in the L-5. Once again after takeoff looking for our wingman
click on the pic


Notice the close proximity of the drilling rigs. If ya'll need to know, The Permian Basin is in a pretty good boom right now.


The Stearman trying to catch up.


Home Base (right center blue hanger)


Turning final 02 Schelemeyer.

Outstanding stuff! That guy really did grease that landing, didn't he?

How hard was it to fight the urge to get in a mock dogfight with the others?

I don't know how a pt-26 would do against a stearman or L-5, but when you see planes coming up on your 6............I did kinda feel like Goose in Top Gun. Wink

Next Weekend I will be a backseater flying to the Airshow in Burnet, TX
