Jets low over Whidbey

Pilot Sylvain Allard of Surrey, B.C., watches his radio-controlled jet fly past at a estimated 200 mph. At right is spotter Roberto Flores of Seattle, whose job it is to make sure there are no other aircraft in the vicinity. The men were participating in last weekend’s Jets over Whidbey presented by the Whidbey Radio Control Society at the Navy’s Outlying Field near Coupeville. “The timing was incredibly difficult,” said photographer Dave Welton. - photo by Dave Welton
