      Airliners 2021 is a wrap from last weekend at PHX. Other than it being HOT I had a wonderful time. Ramp tours/photos of Sky Harbor and Goodyear, Pinal and Coolidge airports, as well as a tour of Skydive Arizona's fleet of pretty much anything were trip highlights.

      Here's the contest stats and link to photos. A huge thanks to everyone who participated.

      7 Modelers entered 21 models. Andrew Stiffler deserves a shout out for 8 entries including a collection of 6 making a total of 13 models.
      Dave Kessler was the last to enter on Friday night which is much better than the sometimes 10am Saturday judging deadline.
