Great Pics of the fly in!

I actually flew planes this weekend up at Fish Lake. My dad and I flew slow stick and Pelican formation over the RV park during the day.

And I flew the Night Slow Stick a couple times.

The Cessna 400 even went up once. I was going to convert it to floats but at 8800-ish feet it didn't feel like it had enough power to come off water.

Boy was I wishing my FPV Herc was done. What a pretty, pretty place to fly. Oh, and fish

Wow, Dennis. Pretty good turn-out at the event. I'm glad you got to go down and check it out.

Yeah there was a good crowd. They'd like to do it every year or maybe even a couple times a year. They definitely have the space for it. I think they ought to advertise more and get some jet guys to do an event there. Not many places will close the real airport runway!

Spanish Fork Event


Spanish Fork is having an "Aeroplanes, Trains & Automobiles" celebration at the Spanish Fork/Springville Airport this Saturday and everyone is invited to participate in RC demonstration flying from 9:00am until 11:00am. It would be great to have some combat and this is an opportunity to fly some big planes from a huge runway. The event includes aircraft displays, helicopter rides, full scale flying exhibitions & contests, car show, live band, sky divers, hot air balloons, etc. Should be a lot of fun.

It might also be a good idea to have some preflight help for the new flyers from the experienced flyers before the event starts. Last sWARm we had a few of flyers that needed a little help when they got there and weren't ready for launch.

I will be flying Saturday morning 0900 at the Sod Farm.

We are willing to donate some kits and a bunch of shirts to the sWARm. We learned there are only a couple of medium sized flyers in the whole valley so we will lean towards the Large and 2x Large.
How about the Theme being CARS aren't targets!

A P-51 Mustang flew over my car at the mouth of Provo Canyon this morning. I assume he was headed for the Spanish Fork event.

I had to roll down the window and just listen to that Merlin sing for as long as I could.

I'm planning to attend. I need to get some practice before swarm.

I could use someone to give the new assassin a once over. Hopefully I can keep it in the air for more than 30 seconds this time.

No one damaged the F-22. Kind of disappointing.
