Time: 2200Z, 1800Est, Friday August 7, 2015
Subject to change depending on interest
NOTAM: New type of event!! Calling all fighters… refuel and return to base… So you’ve been flying around SoCal supersonic, annoying all of the commercial traffic with your intercepts, and buzzing stressed out ATC controllers.
Your commander wants you to report to his office now! You better fly a textbook pattern, grease the landing, and coast to a picture perfect rollout Airman. The commander is ready to chew some butts after seeing what you’ve been doing with his airplanes.
This landing competition is all about the rollout! If you are not familiar with fighters landing, check out this quick YouTube example: F-16 Landing Rollouts YouTube Clip. The technical term is aerodynamic braking, but most people simply call it a wheelie. Test your skills, see if you can wheelie your rollout. It is common to all tricycle geared fighters in IF.
I do not think there will be judging for this inaugural event unless there’s a lot of interest. If that is the case, judges and photogs are needed!
Remember Hickam AFB shares its runways with a commercial airport, please be respectful in traffic!!
