First day of competition

Radom Travel Blog

Though off to a slow start...just imagine a group of judges from different countries all trying to communicate and get on the same page...the weather cleared up and it has turned out to be a beautiful day.  Flyboy had an awesome flight and is extremely happy with his performance.  The airplane is working great (Carroll Sue, you can stop worrying now) and he is flying it very well.  We will get through about half of the total field this evening.  With luck the weather will hold and we will get a full day of flying in tomorrow.

One of the Americans is still waiting for his airplane to arrive in Radom.  Thunderstorms are in the way so hopefully it will arrive tomorrow.  Overall we have had a good day for all of the US pilots...some would like to have done better but I think as a team they are happy with their overall performance.

I'll update as soon as I have more news.  In the meantime bye for now from Radom...

Hi! Word on the tarmac is that Steve placed 7th yesterday! Wow! Fantastic! Keep up the great flying! Not much new here, but Oshkosh was fun. One fatality: Upon leaving, on the taxiway a warbird ran over a RV and killed the passenger. Very sad - where were the pink shirt guys? Anyway our trip was fun but HOT! Keep having fun, you guys!!! Love from Nashville
