The snow was crusty so it would not give way and most likely would flip the plane as it landed. This was happening to the smaller plane with skis.
I decided not to fly them and save them for another day. I did bring out my trusted PZ P-51, and put 4 packs through it. Quite a few members showed up today. It was nice to be out socializing with everyone. I was out for about 2 hours before heading off.
Temperature was about -2C with 10km winds. Beautiful day for flying, especially when you have been cooped up all winter....Continue Reading
