Racer Week

May 10th, 2011 by Mark

We thought it sounded like a good idea to get several of Tom’s racers up for a group photo session. Persuading 3 high performance airplanes to all cooperate at the same time is quite a challenge. We got the Firecracker ready to fly again after being dormant for several years and Christophe took it up for a nice 30 minute flight. After landing, we found some metal in the screens so further inspection is required. The Comet and Caudron however cooperated nicely, as did the weather. We met the photo plane in Hemet on the 5th and got some great air to air shots. (Sorry, no sneak peeks) You’ll have to wait until the magazines come out. We got some great group photos on the ground back at Flabob after the photo shoot. We also got some fun video that Christophe shot from the back of the Comet. The clips are available for viewing on the motion pictures page.
