July 8, 2019: IMAC Nats

By Rich Whitlow (rwhitlow@gmail.com)
Everyone converged on the AMA’s national flying site in Muncie, Indiana, on Saturday after the July Fourth holiday. There was plenty of practice flying and preparation. Everyone was putting last-minute touches on his or her flights before the start of competition on Sunday.

This year we are excited to have Dee Force Aviation as a major sponsor of the IMAC Nationals. We truly appreciate the company supporting all of these outstanding pilots!
