Competitor and Writer at Free Flight Nats 2016

Last week I spent a wonderful week in Muncie Indiana at the national headquarters of the Academy of Model Aeronautics. I flew in a few events and also was recruited at the last second to take pictures and write short articles for a daily publication published during the Nats known as “Nats News”.  I toured the museum and had the chance to meet Bill Pritchett education director in person. The weather really was great for the end of July and I never had to stop flying because of weather conditions. I had the chance to meet several people that I had only known through the Internet previously including; Hank Sperzel, Hank Nystrom, Dohrman Crawford, Jack Murphy, Norman Furtutani, Joe Mekina, and George Bredehoft. Several people mentioned they had read of my foam airplanes or my science activities.

I will be writing in more detail about the week and flying in different events. Below are links to picture albums and a few short video clips I took.
