Welcome to Hop's Fun Fly
19th Anniversary
August 9 & 10th, 2003


Early Morning coffee and pilot's briefing.

Hop answering questions about today's flight plan.

Pilots topping off fuel tanks for this mornings cross country and "Bomb Drop"

This is one sure way to get all the machines lined up on the flight line in a hurry. Time is of an essence in the morning. Gotta' get a jump on the thermals

Rick the Tow Master and his mule.

"Ladies and gentlemen start your engines!." It's warm up time.

This will be the "Press" vehicle for this morning's flight. It's a "Souped-up Buckeye DM" with a Chiron canopy. This should be an interesting flight.

Jim pre-flighting the "Press Vehicle"

Looks like the winds are in our favor this morning.

Machines are all warmed and the pilots are anxious to head for the drop zone.

Bobby headed aloft to check out the winds for the cross country.
