Oh what short lives our Wings live. Michael, cutting ribbons is one thing but when us old guys get serious, the damage can be horrific. And the great thing is that everyone laughs. Look forward to seeing the fruits of your labor.   Vic.
Do it while you can.

Pretty slick paint scheme Michael!  How about a 'Bullseye'/target , make it easier on the older flyers?

Michael,

Your warning looks great.  It will make a perfect target for the Flying Circus.

My plane is propped and balanced; ready to destroy or be destroyed.

Hopefully, you guys will allow me a few flights to learn how to fly it.

Beautiful build as usual, Michael! But don't worry, you'll be surprise on how difficult it is to hit or to get hit if you learn how to fly it. The secrete in the Morning crew's warwing success is that we don't know how to fly it properly.

Micheal,  Frank is trying to say that we tell each other that we are flying formation, but nobody know who is leading?

Well, Bruce, all I can say is that your presentation was enough to get me committed to build and participate.

That's as successful a presentation as any we've ever had!

I participated in my first 2 combat competitions!

Both were exhilarating! There were hits and damage and crashes.

First combat ever: I made 2 ribbon cuts! No damage!

Second combat: no cuts and no damage!

Looking forward to next time!

We flew again Saturday after maidenfest. Glenn, Michael and myself. It was a blast. No one hit each other, but we got close. The wind picked up a bit from the south. That added to the excitement. It was so much fun. I am sure others will be joining.
