That was a fun flight, I have not done a crow hop flight for a long time. It's good to keep in practice.

Dave, so your rig...it doesn't have enough power to get out of ground effect? Or did I miss the point of the video;)

Great video John. You shot this on Sunday? Sorry to have missed seeing you.

Saturday morning, I first had to give a military briefing from home by secure video. As soon as I was finished, I quickly zipped over to El Mirage and arrived by lunch time. Stayed until just before 1700 hours and drove back home. I had to give another video briefing late Sunday morning, so I was unable to return to El Mirage.

Dave, you looked great on Saturday and flying your KB2+ in John's video.

The fly-in well attended and everyone there was happy to be among friends. The weather was great and the winds light on Saturday when I was there.

The 2020 KBFFI turned out FAR better than any of us would have imagined! The weather was just about perfect - though Dave Bacon would have liked a bit more wind! - and the visitors were AWESOME! I am very grateful to all of the members who helped out at KBFFI and ESPECIALLY grateful to all the wonderful people who visited us over the last few days. It was certainly one of the most enjoyable weekends I've had all year! With luck, this Covid issue will be behind us, and we'll have even more fun next year!

For me, the highlight of Mentone was flying with you. You tore up the sky on that flight Christene and you were missed at El Mirage.
They had almost the same attending and some new power parachutes too.
