Triple Tree Chilly Chili Fly-In FG Coverage

FlyingGiants sent Ashley Rose to share her experience and photos from the Triple Tree full scale event! Check out some of great planes that showed up for the second year of this event!

What a gorgeous day for a full scale fly-in!

"Welcome to Triple Tree and enjoy your lunch!" FG is here at Triple Tree getting in on all these big boys have to offer. This was my first full scale event. I'd have to say, for this only being the second year Triple Tree has put this on, I was blown away by how many people were there! 300 people showed up just as lunch started and new pilots were arriving every 5 min. The entire runway from the main flight line to the 3D line was filled with planes! OH! And did I mention lunch? My belly was growling over all that chili ::DROOL:: You all know me, canine connoisseur; I thought it heartwarming that so many puppy pals traveled with their families (by plane and car) to make it to this event. What a perfect setting to a beautiful day. I hope this wont be my last full scale event. There's a lot more pilots out there I need to know!

See you soon Triple Tree!

What an amazing event it turned out to be. It was twice as large as last year with 200 aircraft and 400 for lunch. I enjoyed seeing all my RC buddies that came out and enjoyed the day with us at TTA.

A SWIFT! looks like it had most of the mods done. I got to fly one quite a bit as a kid and always wanted one. By the time I could afford one, I lost my medical but I still look for 'em...


Thanks for the pics.
