Joe Nall Photo Journal by Nikolei

I shot nearly a thousand photos over 3 days, check out my Joe Nall experience!

Joe Nall through Nikolei's eyes

This being only my second time to Joe Nall, I'm still in awe of how much there is going on at any one time through the day and night at Triple Tree. My first time last year was only for a single day and night, so I was happy to be able to spend 3 days this time. I was also able to bring/drag my wonderful wife along this year, so it was interesting seeing her reaction to the size and scope of the event!

Triple Tree Campus

Those that haven't been here yet have heard many times, THIS PLACE IS HUGE! And beautiful! There's a flight-line somewhere during 'Nall that will suit pretty much everyone. And if you're too intimidated to fly, there's PLENTY to watch and see.

The main hangar has some beautifully restored full-scale planes as well as many large R/C planes that have significance. And the newly renovated Learning Center has a huge collection of R/C aircraft all around inside, plus a nice room with several Realflight simulators, a nice movie screen and even better, air conditioning relief for those hot days!

The People

Every single person here has one thing in common...a love of aviation. And with so much of that around, it's hard to pick out anyone that isn't having a good time! Everyone is having fun, the grounds staff are great, and the pilots are happy to answer questions. I even felt secure leaving some of my planes under my canopy while off shooting photos on another flight-line. And of course, I get to work the event with the best team around! The people are what make the event great!

Things to Do

Joe Nall has just about anything you could wanna do with R/C aviation covered! Giant scale? Yup! Electrics? Sure! Foamies? You bet! Control line airplanes, jets, helis, float flying, night flying, FPV? Hellz yea! And if you're still bored, there's the hangar, noon demos, learning center and vendor row! Oh, and don't forget the BBQ dinner and the community build! Even though I was there for 3 days (well, 2.5), I still wasn't able to do everything. I regrettably didn't make it to the 3D line for any of the impressive night flights they do. I also didn't get a chance to check out the FPV line and watch the MultiGP races! Thankfully I did have time to catch up with friends from Michigan, meet lots of the vendors, experience the BBQ and even fly just a bit.

See You Next Year!

This years 'Nall was a blast, with some AWESOME and UNIQUE aircraft to be seen! I'm exhausted from the long days in the sun, but my wife and I had a great time. If you haven't yet, I highly encourage everyone to experience Joe Nall at least once. It really is something you have to see for yourself! If you have, then I hope to see you next year!

But until then, I hope you enjoy my photos below!
