Default IRCHA Jamboree night fly pilot id

Can anyone tell me the name (full name) of the pilot of this helicopter? I believe he was the 2nd or 3rd pilot during the night fly contest. This is for an article I'm writing and I'd like to give him recognition.

Thanks,
Tom T

I wasnt there so im not 100% sure but that looks like John Benario's night rig...he is a rep for century helicopters.

I think Vance is right. Here is a pic of John's Night Rig captured from the video I shot at Birmingham Event early this year.



Good eye Vance!!

Thanks guys. The most distinguishing feature of this night set-up is the bright blue LED at the nose of the canopy.....which are video capture shows as well.

Thanks again,
Tom T
