Default Mo?s fly-in Fed 29, 2020

It was great, a little cool but a beautiful sunny day.

Was only able to stay about an hour, enough time for some chilli and coffee. Left there, flew to Kingston to drop my wife off and headed back to Sault Ste Marie.

Great day for flying.


Terry

Gorgeous weather (clear skies in the morning), about -7C, however there was a stiff cold wind. We were on our way out when we met Terry arriving in his RV6A.

Am avid photographer (Jean-Pierre Bonin) took many photos, but better than mine. Here is his flickr account:

Another view/sort of Mo's photos from Jean-Pierre here:

We missed you Vlad :-)

Default Where time goes?

Hard to believe Alfio it?s been 5 years since we parked there side by side. You are probably the most RV frequenter of the flyin. Followed by Ski Patrick RV8



I will get there again in couple years.

I flew over the runway today - soaking wet, thanks to our warm temperatures of late. I hate to miss Mo's Fly-In, but a sunny beach seemed to have more pull than an icy runway this year!

Terry - sorry to have missed you again this year...
Yes, I am a Canadian. Escaping to the sun and sand is a long-standing Canadian winter tradition! :-)

Yesterday I visited three local ice runways, doing a low-and-over on each of them. I had previously landed on two of them this winter (Mo's wasn't yet ready the last time I flew before departing for the south). My ice runway count is OK for this winter, but I hope to improve it for next winter!

Vlad - all three runways are in the local area, starting with Mo's. Unfortunately all are closed as we have had several days of very warm weather, hence my "low and over" inspections rather than landing on them. Oh well, next year!

Ya, your right Mark.

I'm looking forward to diving in 80 degree water in Cozumel at the end of the month. Can't wait.
