Thanks so much Tom for the above link in Reply #3 to the
WWI Mass Launch
.   My ultimate goal now is to trim out a
WWI bipe
with a little bit of detailing and actually send it off in a Mass Launch !!  It seems like so much fun - especially the buildup to it.
      I "snipped" a whole bunch of still frame pics of that WWI Mass Launch, especially
the mid air collision
, from which both planes recovered.

I'm really looking forward to the mass launch events at WestFAC next month.  I doubt my Tempest will make it out of round one in WWII, but it'll be great to see all the models in the air at once.

The WWII was good, and so is the WWI mass launch:

Great stuff.  Gives a glimpse of the video...
Amazing flights and to see so many models at once, what a sight!!!
One day I've got to make it back to Geneseo, NY!

I can't
believe
the long lengths of
stretched out rubber
these people are winding into their planes !!  Here are a few
bad
single frame snipped pics of the mass launches.

Found this video of the Mass Launches for the WWII contest.  Won by a very nice Focke Wulf TA-152 by Luc.
WWII Mass Launch

Great to see all those planes circling overhead!!!
