Having fun with our friends and
showing off our jets and flying skills are the reasons that most of
us pack all that stuff into our vehicles and hit the road.
Since BVM resides in Florida, to do this with less than a 4 hour
drive was a welcomed opportunity. The Markham Park Jet Rally
has been affectionally nick named "Pablo Jets" for good reasons.
Some participants traveled from England, Canada, New York, and
Illinois because they knew that Pablo would produce an enjoyable
event with a few social amenities.
Dustin, RJ, and I arrived Thursday afternoon in time to get a few
flights each. The weather was perfect. A
first-of-the-season frontal passage caused a total blow-out on
Friday so we visited the new hobbyshop in town, "House of Power"
with proprietors Rob Lynch and Vern Pain welcoming us. It is
a well organized, well equipped model airplane establishment greatly
enhanced with Rob's vast knowledge of our sport and friendly
The wind subsided a bit on Saturday so we flew non-stop.
Dustin assisted with many first flights on Skymaster and BVM Jets.
RJ maidened his Electra and I flew our Ultra Bandit, MiG-15,
E-Bandit, and the latest EVF 10s demo Electra for a total of nine
flights. Time to take photos was limited but here they are.
