Heavy Bomber Action at Warbirds over Delaware

Jul 17, 2013 11 Comments by

This past weekend, MAN was at the annual giant scale warbird meet in Newark, DE. Though the weather was challenging, there were lots of amazing warbirds and military airplanes on hand. As usual, Mac Hodges was there with his amazing giant scale B-29 Superfortress Bomber. Check out this wild video of his flight! Special thanks to the WOD gang for providing this video.

    That is incredible nice flying! Especially the landing coming right out of a loop ….. and with a four engine plane….

    A most un-scale like performance and really cool!!

  3. Roger says:

    I really don’t agree with this flight, this is scale airplane representing a bit of history, and he goes and does things like this, so stupid, you want to do aerobatics, get a Pitts or something

    Mac does an outstanding job with this B-29 and deserves all the credit. He is a showman with his team and they work hard for our enjoyment. Thanks for an outstanding job. Hank

    I remember “45″ years ago I was flying a scale R/C plane inverted and
    someone was standing behind me shouting, I should not do that because
    that’s not scale! WOW, HAVING FUN SURE UPSETS SOME FOLKS.
    And it is still happening—————-Syd

    Aw c’mon everyone! Scale like flying? I seem to remember a full scale airliner doing a roll during a demo flight! If you want to argue about realism, argue about beautiful RC’s with NO PILOT!
