3 Days until Top Gun — The excitement grows in the scale community!

Apr 28, 2014 No Comments by

The MAN team is getting set to travel down to Lakeland Florida, to cover the biggest scale event of the year! Held at Paradise Field, Top Gun is more than just a popular event, and destination. Though each year the editors get a front row seat as we cover all the scale action and details for you, our loyal MAN Readers, we also always enjoy the trip as we renew old friendships and meet new friends at this amazing scale competition. Here’s some pix from past Tog Gun events! Stay tuned as we will be posting live from the event starting Thursday!


Frank Tiano and Sam Wright conduct the morning pilot safety meeting.


Last year’s Mr. Top Gun winner David Wigley with his amazing Bristol Beuafighter.


Debra Chats with Dave on the flying field.


Hard working Top Gun Judges–the best in the country.


If you are looking for the MAN team this year, be sure to check under P.J. Ash’s tent at Warbird Alley!


We’ll be teaming up with scale expert and past MAN editor, Rich Uravitch, (as well as others,) to cover all the action!


One of the most popular aircraft and pilots (according to you!) on the MAN FaceBook page, is Jeff Foley and his impressive DL-50cc gas engine powered Messerschmitt Bf-109E Jeff will be flying the “Emil” again this year!


Who do you think will win this year? Will someone take the title from David Wigley after 4 years?!
