Was going to go down to the Briar Patch today to visit Maxie Wildes and the rest of the " Boyz " But decided not to go due to possible bad weather. Got a call from another friend about a fly in near Southern Pines N.C. today so a bunch of us flew over. Turns out the fly in was a Airshow by the CAF. Lot's of old Warbirds and other cool planes. So here is some pics, Enjoy.
This first couple are of my Pacer sitting on the grass runway, a cloud shots on the way over, and one of Mike as he is coming out of a loop in his Skybolt - he is barely visable in the pic -

This is my friend Barrys plane. He just bought it, It is a Giles 202 all carbon fiber experimental unlimited class aerobatic plane. This thing is just too cool to describe! The throttles are little skulls, and the paint job is like a Sci-Fi movie theme. The plane is called Primal Fear....

A couple more cool planes that were there. A Christan Eagle, a F1 Rocket, a nice Cub and a little Sportplane

A few pics of some cool old classic cars. And one of a Russian Ural motorcycle with side car - I had one just like it about 2 years ago.

nice little Champ, a Big 5 seat taildragger, and some one who is brave enough to fly a Hirth!

More warbirds. Most of them had big round engines that make the sweetest sounds flying by.....

Ron, your freinds plane, "Primal Fear", was on the cover of EAA's mag a while back. Very nice!

Are you sure were not lost!!!!

Chris that was before he bought it. But yes that is the same plane. This is the same Barry that I let fly my red Dominator a while back, who had never had any previous gyro experience. He is a talented natural pilot and a good friend.

Wow, Ron those were some planes. I bet they made your little piper feel small....
That is some serious hardware there though. I had no idea we had that many planes like that in the state.

Ron: Nice display of aircraft. That Pacer of yours is a sharp looking plane and is getting a good workout. There is a Piper Colt at our airport that is a cute plane also but the owner only flies it twice a year......
