Joe Nall News: Mean-Spirited Tree is Removed!

Pat Hartness addresses the "Balsa Magnet."

Splash

She's gone!

After four years of eating airplanes on the 3D line of the Triple Tree Aerodrome, the "balsa magnet" is no more. After claiming four airplanes in just two days this year, Mr. Pat Hartness had had enough and personally removed the offending tree. While watching the tree fall, it became clear why it was such a magnet for airplanes. The tree was not actually part of the tree grouping that is at the end of the runway, it was a good two hundred feet in front of the other trees causing a huge depth perception problem. Good riddance Balsa Magnet, you have claimed your last victim!

It's a proven fact here in Va. that the tree leaves create a static electrical charge when the winds is blowing and the leaves rub together thus attracting foamy planes. We've tried flying on non windy days but there seems to be "left over" charge in the leaves and the trees still claim our planes. Any suggestions on what to do? We're looking into rubber edges on the wings but that's just not right. LOL

As a native of North Carolina I would like everyone to know that these blithering idiots are not from NC. They are obviously some tree hugger rejects from California, sorry California.

I never realized how far that tree was from the rest of them until i rode over to the control line circles. No wonder it ate so many planes because from the flight line it looked like it was part of the group.
