        Note: The final score is composed of the Static score + the average of the three best flying scores.

   Greg Foushi out flew everyone! His score of 98 was the highest score he has ever had on any aircraft in 10 years of flying at Top Gun. The main landing gear would not come down on the 1st flight so Greg made a great landing using the fuel tanks & tail wheel. Bill Freeland, Crew Chief for Sawbones, corrected the landing gear problems. Tim Len made a great video of static judging & the 2nd Sawbones flight. Modifications will be made to the canopy to stop it from pulling away from the fuselage at the back.
