The Western Slope Division once again went to Arizona to enjoy some fun in the sun with the great folks at Desert Armor Korps. This year the event was held at Falcon Field Airport during an air show by the Commemorative Air Force and a military vehicle show. We got to battle our RC tanks among real jeeps and trucks, near a fully functional Hellcat, while a B-17 and Huey Cobra buzzed us. Russian Yak fighters did a couple passes overhead too, as a Mig parked nearby watched over our stuff.
The WSD took 10 folding portable buildings to the event, allowing us to quickly deploy a “Potemkin Village” on the tarmac for visiting people to drive loaner tanks around in.
