Winter Flying


Went out winter flying today... I know Lyle who maintains our field keeps the runway pretty clear, so I brought out my two P-47's in hopes that I maybe able to fly them. At the field, a quick assessment indicated I could probably take off, however landing may be a tougher with the uneven ground. 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.
