If you were at this years Big Jolt event, you may have noticed John Reid, the West Coast Senior Editor for Model Airplane News and Electric Flight Magazine, running around to chat with the pilots and take some photos and video.
When I downloaded the March 2013 digital issue of Electric Flight Magazine yesterday, I was pleasantly surprised to see what John was up to while he was at our event. John wrote a beautiful 4 page spread, including tons of Photos. And If you subscribe to the Digital edition, there is great interview with Sam Wright, the CD of this event. If your a print subscriber, you can get to the video interview with a built in QR code link which you can scan with your smart phone. In 2010, John featured a video interview with Sam on the Model Airplane News Blog, but I believe the is the first time our Big Jolt event has been covered in a national publication.
If you have a subscription to either Electric Flight or Model Airplane News or you read his blog, you will know that John often reviews new model airplanes. You probably also notice that many of the field testing for these reviews take place at one of our fields at either Prado or Norton. Not only is John a member of our Club but he is a huge supporter of it. He Comes to most of our events, which are often featured in his blog, and he often mentions our club in his articles when he is at our field writing his reviews. This time he’s shown his support by featuring a nice writeup of the Big Jolt event. I’m sure next years turn out will be even bigger because of it.
Thanks for the nice write up John, The PVMAC appriciates it.
