com, including the 2014 West Texas
Warbirds. Despite the strong winds,
the pilots had a great time. Here are
some reader comments:
Bryan McLarty: As event CD, I
was very excited to see so many great
aircraft and host a lot of returning
friends. West Texas Warbirds just
continues to amaze me as we get to
meet a few new modelers every year.
To me, the people make the event.
Les Morrow: Very nice article on
the West Texas Warbirds event for
2014. Thanks to Terry Dunn for a
reporting job well done! The winds
were a little goofy, but we all had a
great time, and got lots of flying into
the three days the event ran.
Scott G.: I flew in that event. Most
guys were not even flying due to high,
gusting crosswinds. The ones brave
enough to fly their beauties, hats off
sski: That crosswind was a killer.
Barry Harmon: Kudos to you folks
for braving the elements!
