Fullerton Air Group



One day, our wives were talking to each other, and one of them said "Gee..  Why don't you guys come up with a name for your club?"  As a smart-ass remark, I quipped:  "Sure, we can call ourselves the Fullerton Air Group and get t-Shirts that say 'FAG' on them!".  Well, it stuck.....


From Left to Right: Bryan Barba, Mark Engels, Breanna Barba, Mitch Bidrawn, "Gearbox" John, Les Bidrawn, and Drew!

We are often asked why we all have Helicopter canopies on our heads.....


Where did I put that Heli Tail Tube???

A number of my neighbors got in the habit of flying together every Saturday and Sunday morning.  Bryan, Kenny, Mark, Les, Jim, Shaun, Mark B, John, Jim, Herman, and others gather on the nearby High School field and we go flying!  Sometimes, we get QUITE a few aircraft lined up:

Here is a video of that lineup, you can see each aircraft in detail:

 Once in a while, we will attach a "Smoker" to one of our planes or helicopters, just for a little extra excitement.  Here is Herman's Corsair drawing lines across the sky...

Bryan Steals my motor IN MID AIR!

Here is the story:  First, I started flying my Corsair without canopy or cowl.  Second, I came in for a rather rough landing, and cracked my motor mount, giving it a severe downward slant, so  I packed Kleenex behind the motor mount to restore the proper angle, and was back in the air!  This infuriated Bryan , so he took to the skies in HIS Corsair to “take me down”...  We danced through the sky for a while, then… IMPACT!  What happened next was amazing…  

My propeller had lodged in his wing, and ripped the motor right out of my plane!  We grabbed a camera, and filmed this- while he flew my motor to the far side of the flying field and dropped it!!!
