Pedro comments: “ I love aviation and enjoy building and flying my warbirds models. This year is my fourth year at Top Gun, the first year I ended up on 5th place, the following two years I made it to 2nd place, Last time I crashed so I’m hoping to do better this year. I just finished this airplane and I’m hoping to do better this year. I am flying it often so to learn it and get use to it more in the two remaining weeks before Top Gun. I’ll do my best.”
