GUIDELINES AND RULES FOR WARBIRD STUNT EVENT:

• AIRPLANES must be at the very least semi-scale and be readily recognizable for the airplane they represent. The airplanes can be profile and/or built-up fuselages. Some examples would be the Pat Johnson military designs, Don Hutchinson series of war bird planes, the old Midwest kits and plans(P-39, P-40, P-51), Al Rabe designs, some of the Sterling kits (Spitfire, Hurricane, YAK-9, P-51). These are just a few examples. There are many others too numerous to name.  Some may simply scratch build their War Bird planes. Modified non-military airplanes that are made to loosely resemble military planes will not be allowed (ex. Mod. Ring Masters, Flite Streaks, Veco Chiefs, Militarized Twisters or similar designs). 
• Airplanes shall have military finishes, or finishes that relate or depict their mission. Fancy Air Show/racing paint schemes will not be allowed. However, paint schemes found on military demonstration aircraft are OK (ex. Navy Blue Angels, Air Force Thunderbirds).  The intent is to have airplanes that represent the military theme for the sake of honoring their place in history, the men who flew them, the hardworking men who maintained them and kept them flying, the men who designed them, and the men and women who built them. 
• The stunt pattern will be the modern AMA pattern w/pattern points awarded.
• This will be an open class competition.
• There will be a PILOTS CHOICE award for the best warbird plane-based on fit, finish and likeness to the aircraft it represents – the plane must have been built by the contestant.
