Mojave Plane Crazy this Saturday!

The handful of cool and unusual aircraft that graced Mojave's traffic pattern yesterday provide a great opportunity to remind everyone that this Saturday it is time once again for the Mojave Flightline to open up to the public for another Plane Crazy Saturday. Featured this month will be Ralph Wise's one-of-a-kind GT-400 (this brute is not to be mistaken for the ultralight of the same designation!).

As for yesterday, Mojave's own Mark Street had his gorgeous yellow Pitts S-1 up playing in the early hours of the morning. A little later, a competition aerobatic Zivko Edge 540 came screaming down Rwy 26. This beauty is either a visitor or a newly acquired resident (it was up flying again today), and is registered to a consulting company in Cornwall, UK. To keep the international flavor going, a venerable Canadian-registered de Havilland DHC-2 Beaver floated in for a nice wheel landing.
