    In know this is not RV related, but all you veterans will like it.

    From my e-mail:
    Most amazing model airplane(s) you've ever seen!
    Remarkable! B29 Bomber This is only a model
    airplane, but the time he must have spent putting this
    together, and learning to fly it. Awesome.......This
    aircraft runs on four chainsaw motors. You can just
    imagine how much time, effort, skill and money these
    guys have put into this thing. Click on the site

    That is one fine piece of flying, too! They got me when the downward spiral developed into a situation where the pilots had to eject! I had my eyes closed! :eek:

    Great clip Ken and I've sent it on to my son-in-law in Texas, who is a model plane nut. I actually thought that it may be the latest Barack Obama tv ad for proposed cuts in the USAF budget!

    Great clip, I can't imagine of all the time and practice that went into the project. We winter in Brenda, Arizona and there is a strip set up there for the radio controlled airplanes and I love to watch them but have never seen a show of this caliber. :bleh: :cool: :laugh:

    Ken,

    Thanks for sharing that. As a former Navy pilot (Phantoms and Tomcats) that was pretty darn impressive. Just last week on the Military Channel they had show on a group that is refurbing a B-29. Looked like a great show. You really got a wakeup call on the size of this beast when the young fella ran out and picked up the X-15 and then had it standing on its wing in the one shot. In all the shots the B-29 dwarfed the X-15.

    I beleive that was a model of the Bell X-1 that was released from the superfort, not the X-15, but a very amazing video none the less.
