Site of the 2007 Worlds

Here are a couple of pics that I snapped off during this year US Open. These are very unique photos considering out of 42 competition task held here they have only cancelled 2 of them and these are the photos to show you why they were cancelled.. I was very hesitant to start the course on this day as I could see this storm approaching. Minutes later after we had started the organisers called the day off as lightning started to strike on course line. I was the first one to land at the strip and got to see some amazing crashes as pilots tried to get down in the storm front. There were a couple of outstanding landings from Andreas Olhson and paris williams who landed just as the wind was switching 360 degrees twice a minute. Somehow they pulled off there landings and unfortunately there were plenty more replacing uprights and equipment.
