Yes Chris. I think it will be the 2nd Sunday in June if there are no conflicts with other flyins. We will advertise it on the different forums.

We had a nice turnout last June for the 1st event. There's a thread on it on another forum.

A perfect flying day Sunday in Mattoon, IL brought out the P-51's. All four are Top Flite 1/5 scale. HL-C "Small Boy Here" by Scott Pieper; QP-S "Dody" P-51C by Ralph White; TJ-W by Steve Epperson; LG-W by Bill Snowden. After the photo session Scott, Ralph and Steve did a little tail chasing. Bill waited and flew a solo mission since it was only the 2nd flight on his bird.
