Bellota Jet - Cáceres 2017
The Bellota Jet is usually the first event of the Spanish calendar, as well as being without a doubt one of the largest events in our country. Having had all winter to prepare new models, you are guaranteed to find something new, and this year it was my turn. It was the first outing for my Composite-Arf J10 3D jet. With well over a hundred pilots, we were blessed with great weather allowing everyone to fly a number of times each day. Unusually, the wind also played ball and didn't really affect flights as it has done previously.
Models are really getting bigger and bigger, with some huge planes on site such as Javier Palacio’s Tomahawk Bae Hawk 100, the twin Airworld F104 Starfighters and the Mibo A10 of Jesús Bagüés becoming the norm.
I took my three best models of the moment, the fully 3d capable vector jet the J10, my awesome new Pilotrc 107” Extra 330Sc and my now well known Jets Model Factory Ultimatun, with which I was fortunate enough to receive best of show with, alongside teammate Raúl Lozano for our high speed, aggressive “formation” flying.
