Thanks. I've been shooting RC Events for about 10 years in Eastern Ont & finally worked my way up to the major flight line at Jet events a few years ago. Due to safety requirements very few people are allowed on the flight line unless they are the pilot or spotter. If you aren't up to date on RC it's gone way past what it used to be. Scale Jets can & do pass $50,000 Cdn. There's now a 1/3 scale F 104 available. I have several shots of a 1/4 scale one in this album but you need to be a Facebook user (I think).

yea, i have watched youtube videos of rc shows and especially the jets...they look and sound just like the real thing, some i have seen actually shooting off flares and the like, seen one video of a pair of guys, iirc they were using mig 29s and did their show with the 2, was just like watching a real act of the actual jets

1/3 scale, that must be huge, you have great shots of the F 104, great looking jet, love the inflights of the phantom also!

Thanks. They aren't toys, and their dangerous in some cases. In the US the jets are limited to 200 MPH at events, but here in Canada we don't have a speed limit. Several friends fly a Star Wars like aircraft known as the Aviation Design's Diamond. They also fly them in the 500 KPH speed range. If you were hit by one at speed it would cut you in half.

If you're interested in finding clubs or events in your area this is where you start. MAAC is the sanctioning body for Canada & events are run under their safety & insurance guidelines which thankfully have been exempted by the newest Transport Canada rules & regulations. The MAAC site shows 4 clubs in your area & chances are at least 1 has a few jet pilots. They DO use real miniature gas turbine engines, burn either Jet A, Kerosene or Diesel fuel depending on how the owner has programmed the ECU. Sometimes if they crash they can also explode into a fireball & burn to a crisp. Note until we get Covid under control clubs aren't planning events BUT are anxious to get back to that.

That's some shot DC. That's the only USAF aircraft I ever had my hands on and that was after an emergency landing when I was on shift at R.A.F. Brize Norton. Something to do with the boundary layer hot air system. It had stayed on when it shouldn't and was a imminent danger of major damage to the wing structure.

A circuit breaker had failed. I was amused and surprised when I mew the blokes who had come over from the home R.A.F/USAF base. They asked me how I knew about Phantoms? I said that I didn't but it was straight forward compared to a VC10. And they asked what type of eleky I was? Engines, instruments and all of the other systems. I told them that I looked after th complete aircraft and the Shorts Belfast as well. They were really surprised as they had elekys for different parts of the aircraft. I can't remember how many 'specialists'?


My ambition for a good while is to grow old disgracefully. So far my wife tells me that I am doing really well!

Thank you for your reply, nice story, this one was shot at Fairford not far from Brize, during departure day after RIAT.

Cheers,
Rene.

yes, covid is really reeking havoc on everything, last summer was the first summer in quite a while i never got to an airshow and this summer most likely won't be much better

i have been to my local rc air field, have yet to see anything like the jets in your photos though

The 2 big jets events in this end of Canada are held at Wingham Ont (about mid July) and Chatham Ont (in mid Sept). I don't know how big the one is out west but there is one held in BC. Both the Ontario events draw US pilots & more at Chatham because it's a shorter trip for many of them. There are several big US events but I haven't been to any. Also note our jet events allow both Gas Turbine and EDF jets (Electric Ducted Fan). EDF gets you in cheaper but have short flight times because they really drain batteries quickly because the jets are heavy from the needed batteries. These are the links to my last trip to Chatham & if you pay attention you'll notice a really nice F 86 and a lady working as the ground crew. SHE is the award winning builder & does fly too. Part 1 first, & also note both of the Ontario events have me shooting towards the light more so at Chatham though.
