THE FIRE TRUCK RIDE

It’s really what’s it all about… the fire truck ride up and down the flightline and grandstands. WAVE TO FANS and take in your moment of glory for the team! All the money and effort boils down to a 5 minute ride in an old fire truck

BUT BOY IS IT WORTH IT!!

After much success in this class the perfect step up project became available. A Lancair Legacy RG located in PA was found and quickly purchased. That was three years ago and now the project is 99% complete. So what's next...
