Airport Appreciation Day 2008 Pictures
Saturday August 30
Got a bit windy early, then got very windy. The general avaition folks were ready to halt the rides, as it was getting bummpy up there!
This was a great time. Pat put in 3 or 4 flights with his Yak and I put in 3 or 4 with my heli. I got a bit too agressive with my heli on my last flight and stripped a couple of teeth off my tail drive gear, didn't notice until I landed. It would have been a bad thing to loose tail control in that setting.Alan
They gave us a patch of grass to fly off that is in two taxi ways, when the wind kicked up and the full scale traffic increased, it made model flying pretty exciting.
All in all I think we got some good exposure for the Florence RC club. This is a great group of guys and I hope to get over and fly with them again some day.
