This pic was taken (not by me) on Presque Isle, Erie PA, over 10 years ago. My stack is the 1.5's on the ground. Of course, the ones with the yellow centers are owned and being flown by Lee Sedgwick.

Quite Impressive!

The photo date would be 1995 or later judging by the REV 1.5s. The logo changed to a straight logo in 1997. There are no REVs with the that logo. So I am guessing 1995 or 1996.

Do you know who owns each of the other stacks?
It seems to me that the upper right stack of six might belong to Sam Ritter.

Now that is what I would call a stack of stacks.

What a fantastic picture.

And the background is what I fell makes it so spectacular.

The stacks on thier own would have been good, with the other kites and goings on, SUPER cool.

You are probably right, that name sounds familiar. I don't know the other owners; it was a long time ago and I did not keep in touch with them.

You can see that many stacks, and more the last weekend of July every year at 'Discover Presque Isle' in Erie, Pa. It's Rev heaven, truly.
