ARCA Big Bird event (Austin)

by Mark Johnston   September 4, 2015

Today and tommorrow I am attending the Austin Big Bird event. We arrived at the field today to see several nice flights. Gary Smith the club president flew a nice B-17 with a Willys jeep escort out to the flight line. Was very cool. I gave out several balsa airplanes to some kids and had some one make me a P-38. See picture below.

The event had 43 pilots. Randall Larsen is the official CD in charge and we have lots of public here due to the TV coverage in Austin. The club did an outstanding job with the event. Had a great time flying and visiting with all of the pilots that attended.

The space city club showed up in force 11 club members came to the event. A picture of everyone will be in the electronic version of the November magazine along with all the rest of the pictures I took.
