2017-02 Swamp Fest
At least once a year the SE Region of the RedStar Pilots Association (RPA) meets in Waycross, GA, at the Waycross - Ware County-Airport (KAYS) to conduct formation training and enjoy some good comradery. The event has gone by Swamp Thunder, Gator Chase, Waycross Happenings, and now Swamp Fest. In addition to formation flying there are also Flour Bombing and Precision Landing Competitions. During this gathering I flew with Wayne "Grandawg" Altman in his Nanchang CJ-6 and Larry Lee in his Aero Vodochody L-39 Albatross "777". The background photos is a Yak-52 on the KAYS ramp at sunset.
