This beautiful morning all are set up to mass launch the first flight of the Speed 400 class. Jack Hiner (green shirt, white ball cap on the right) asked me to launch and time for him. I'm in my red wind breaker holding Jack's Lanzo Airborne as high as possible. The pressure is on because CD Steve Roselle has told Jack that we will launch first followed by the others on the flight line - sort of a SAM "Wave." Jack had the high time in this round and went on to place Third in the event. However, he did really well in other electric events by launching early in the day.
