Take off...ehhhh!

What a day! This morning Judy was sitting around the RV and says to me, "hey, do you want to go over to Lakeland and take in the RC Model Airplane Fly In????" Huh???? What.... Of course I do!

Check out the video above, of a Blue Angel Jet Plane! What a blast... this is what we watched all afternoon.

We were over at the Lakeland Lindor Regional Airport... they have an RC Model Plane flying field attached at the end, with about a 600 foot paved runway for the planes... I was in second heaven!

This is a high performance twin engine jet plane above... this thing FLIES!!!!

The pic above kind of showes you the jet engines... they burn regular Jet Fuel.

They had a big crowd, maybe around a 1,000 people or so, out to watch... on a great Florida afternoon. This was actually a 3 day show.... today being the last day.

Above is a scale version of a Blue Angel... it was featured in the lead off video on tonights blog... probably worth around $3,000 to $4,000 !

This is the flight line above... pilots and planes! Lots of different planes to watch today!

The video above gives you a good idea of how big these things are, and how heavy they are...

Judy and I spent the whole afternoon here, taking in the sun and fun! What a blast!

Till tomorrow...


  1. WOW...I have never seen model airplanes so big. What a fun way to spend the day.

  2. I'm sure that Judy is happy that you're not flying one of those big boys. Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  3. Now, those are big airplanes!

  4. Great activity. I would have been there too. Good on Judy to suggest it.

  5. Those planes are so big and go so fast they could actually cause a lot of damage should they ever crash into a home. Those guys must carry a lot of personal insurance.

  6. Looks like a real fun day watching those guys fly, just amazing how they do it.
