   Johanna and I had just finished with Super Jets South in GA. when an opportunity arose to go to a New Jet Rally that is in its second year in Shreveport LA. A quick phone call with Bob Covish and we had Terry Monroe's phone number. Come on over he said, come early and receive some Louisiana hospitality. So we did.

  Randi Walding the manager of CE Rusty Williams Airport in Mansfield, just south of Shreveport ( and amazing full scale helicopter pilot too ) was very welcoming to all of us. This may even become a twice a year event. The airport has a 5000' by 100' runway which has just recently been resurfaced, so it was perfect for our needs.

  As this is only the second year, the rally is still growing as more and more pilots find out about it. That said, BVM had a very good showing with a beautiful F86, a 1/5th scale PNP F16, 3 Ultra Bandits, 2 Bandit ARF's, 1 KingCat, 1 BobCat composite and 1 BobCat XL which turned out to be an early prototype that was originally owned by Tommy Dodgen. As always with BVM products, all were just fuelled and flown for the three days with 100% reliability.

Here are a few pics of the guys and girls flying BVM products.
