I thought this 5 ship echelon would be a great Calendar contender-
Glad you posted it Bob.

It was great to make new friends and see some old ones.
One of the highlights for me was flying on Bob Mills (Nasty) wing during some four ship practice. Thanks Nasty for a great flight!
And of course I can't forget the all up when Bravo flight (lead by Tailwind) joins with Alfa flight and I find myself in trail on "Slick" and dressing off of "Condor" and "Nasty". No pressure

Mark, it was a pleasure to meet and fly with you! Thanks for coming all that way to the clinic! It was also special for me to fly with an orange and white plane for the first time in a long time (brought back good Navy memories!). And I was dressing off you in the all-up, and you were rock solid! Nice flying!!
Jim's "Sabre" is sure a nice looking machine!
Here's another pic. The camera can often be very revealing (and very unforgiving) of the slightest positional error, as we all constantly work to get in, stay in...then get back in. Every once in a while amazing shots come through, and they are neat to see. Below (IMHO) is the picture that you will see if you look up close trail in the dictionary! Sean "Goose" Farrell is flying close trail on lead Tim "Tank" Redden. As Tank aptly described it, Goose is Hooked Up
