Great list of names !!!!!!!! I haven't heard a word about Steve Stricker for ever, since I was at the 2002 TOC in Vegas. I hope to see many pictures and hopefully videos of this as there is no way I could ever attend

Iím on a work trip with Mike McConville and we went to pick up his airplane for the event... one of his former TOC airplanes... the first picture is how it looks now when we picked it up and the second photo is of the same airplane nearly 20 years ago at the TOC... it was kept in near immaculate condition!

I remember Mike flying that black Carden 232. That was the first fixed wing I saw someone fly with gyros. Several guys were using the JR gyros at the 1999 TOC.

I have the same plane except the black was replaced with purple.

No rule at all about using an older airplane but many are embracing the idea... I know Christophe and mike are. Mike obviously also has a sukhoi ready to go as well
