use of smoke in an air show act.
One of my fun moments was when
Peter Goldsmith and I put together
a British heritage flight. Peter piloted
his 1/5-scale Spitfire and I flew a de
Havilland Vampire. The pressure was on
and we had to step up our game. Our
spotters were none other than Ken and
We had a credible flight cheered on
by the masters, and had fun performing
formation flying with two different
aircraft types. We could hold our heads
high. It was not bad for two modelers
joining up for the first time.
After a couple of days of flying, we
finished the event with an evening at
the National Museum of the United
States Air Force, with two hours in
the museum only for D.O.G.S. show
participants. This is the world’s largest
aviation museum, and it keeps growing.
Every visit is special.
Events such as Wings & Warbirds
Over Port Clinton and the D.O.G.S.
Airshow at the National Museum of the
United States Air Force, make for some
wonderful experiences for spectators
watching their friends fly all types of
aircraft and for pilots flying their favorite
aircraft at special fields and events.
