12 O'Clock High
By Bob Violett
| This early Fall FTE event
is for military replicas from any era of aviation
history. Therefore, our jets mingled in the air with WWI
biplanes, Cub Trainers, and WWII recips like P-51's, P-47's,
Good News - No Mid Airs
The persistent light
crosswind didn't deter any jet flying, so we dominated
the airborne activity to the pleasure of most of the
spectators. They like to watch the jets and visit our
tent with lots of questions and stories.
The A-10 Warthog spurs the
most interest because so many former Air Force and
Marine members were involved with its maintenance,
arming, and piloting. The BVM demo team took 10
scale jets to
12 O'Clock High and flew them all many times.
