Quoted From A Fellow Traveler:

Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile. Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance.

The local RC club had an air show about a half hour away from us so we had to check it out.
 As stated above, this plane is half scale. I had Joyce stand next to it so you could get an idea of how big the plane is.
Most of the model planes were pretty big and had about 5' wing spans. They were mostly biplanes.
If you look closely, you will notice two jets.
This is a model that has a real jet engine. It shows two engines but really only has one. The plane has been clocked at 121 MPH and when it flew, it sounded and looked like the real thing.
This one gentleman, had these detailed models that he built. The detail was awesome.
 So much work went into the construction of these models, I would be afraid to fly them.
 He had three of the models that he built and he does fly them.......cautiously!
This jet model of an A10 actually has two jet engines. The planes has working lights, a canopy that opens, and retractable landing gear. At a cost of about $5000.00 for each engine, the model totals out at about $40,000.00. Oh yea..it also drops bombs....
