Model Airplane News Heads to Top Gun 2014

Wow! Top Gun 2014 was certainly one for the record books, and the Model Airplane News crew was on the flightline for it all. Due to rainy weather and a compressed flight order, the pilots of Top Gun were truly in a “fly or go home” situation. Very exciting! Here are the final results. Did your favorite pilot and plane win?
