Friday Night at Lockheed Recreational Facilities

Folks, this Friday night the Lockheed Aeromodelers will get together to fly and talk indoor remote controlled air vehicles. Flying will start at 1900 and end at 2200. The address is 3400 Bryant-Irving road in Ft Worth. Exit 9A off of I30, head south on Bryan-Irving for about 3 miles, just over the Trinity river and turn right into the facilities. Tell the guard why you are there. Two full size gyms side by side, plenty of room to yank and bank. Landing fee charged inplace of club dues. Open to all indoor flyers Lockheed employee or not. Visitors welcome, plenty of seating and the crew is eager to answer any questions on the hobby/sport you may have. We fly everything from a Wright Flyer, orinthopters, Gee Bees, a B-36 Peacemaker, all Stik variations to full 3D aircraft. Nothing weighing more than 16 ounces or a motor over the 300 series allowed. We follow NIRAC/AMA guidelines for indoor flight. ed

Not enough room here

Man, you airdales sure got it made. Working for Lock-Mart in the FBM branch kinda....limits us

Those launch tubes are tall enough all right, but it takes a good turning plane to keep from bumping into the walls

gollum, just remember somebody has to do it and we lucked out this time. You ought to see the other place I fly at. Its the Ft Worth Convention Center Arena. The arena has a ceiling height of 125 feet and seats about 10,000 folks. I fly a purple Parkhawk orinthopter and 16 foot airship for the Ft Worth Brahmas Hockey Team. I usually get an hour or so of flying before each game and its worth the time spent suffering through the 34 plus games I attend each year. Fourth season starting in October. Its really rough having to fly two to three times a week but again it has to be done. Wish everyone could be so lucky! ed
