Matt and I set out to fly higher than the clouds. Scott followed us up but chickened out at around 6000 feet. I made it to over 8000 and then came down lower to level off where matt was. It was COLD up there!
Check the bottom right number on the EIS display, that is my altitude above ground ( set for Zero on the runway at Mentone )
Here is Matt
Steve Osborn coming in for a landing
I only know the two in the black shirts and the one on the far right Stan Foster and Wayne Hubbs in black and Animal in white
After hours bash at Camp GyroRon ( notice all the empties beside Matts chair! )
Hey looks like the butt of a joke to me in there somewhere?
That was great, Ron! I know these guys and gals!!!
I wasted too much time driving and staying at the motel. Next year I'm camping. Looks like I missed way to much of the fun this year after dark party.
I Loved the water shots too. Way to enjoy life with the family!!!!
Talk about kindred spirits!!!
I love following a wave waiting for it to break then spinning her 180 in the foam and at max speed driving up the face of a 6 foot about to break wave and shooting straight up it's face and flying (12 to 16 feet counting the troth behind the wave) and hanging there ….. coming down straight like a broom stick handle thrown into a pool using the water as a shock absorber (as long as you are perpendicular) and popping back up and racing to get out of the way of the next wave about to break over you and slam you down to the bottom of the sea and bouncing your poor toy somersaulting it all the way into the beach head over heals and into pieces. It's happens. Life is fun if you just do it!
Look at Ron's short takeoff distances.
I also just noticed the white prop, so that's not Saturday.
great pics Ron, looks like Matt was thirsty after all the flying, or... he could have been trying to wash down a bug from all the high flying in the clouds.... lol
great pics. you both are very good with the doms.....
