The Virtual Graveyard

These unfortunate airplanes and their pilots have at one time earned The Golden Shovel Award. "The Shovel" is a Post 117 tradition that dates back to the late 1980's.  Post 117 R/C pilots who "have a bad day" are presented with "The Shovel" to ceremonially bury their fallen aircraft.  The planes are not actually buried and actual digging with "The Shovel" is prohibited.  The section below is dedicated to the memory of the ships we've lost along the way.
