Took my Sonex t/d up there last week for the first time this year and I'm glad I took the wheel pants off it was very bumpy in spots , especially with my little 11x4x5 tires , it was a good time and at one point counted 18 aircraft and 2 robinsons , great place to go , ,

Default As seen on TV

Local TV made a nice report about Alton Bay Ice Airport in Hew Hampshire Chronicles. My RV and Andy's briefly appeared several times in this short clip.

Enjoy (after a short commercial) http://www.wmur.com/new-hampshire-ch...unway/24671122

Small world!

The Cirrus was piloted by a friend visiting from the UK and the under-wing footage showing the yellow/white wheelpants is a good friend from NH and that plane has visited 53VG a couple times.

Vlad, you've used up another 90 seconds worth of you 15 minutes of fame

Default Finally Landed on the Ice

Saturday's East Coast weather was great and Alton Bay's ice runway was 20 inches thick -- fully operational. Game on!

Looking down at Alton Bay. Taxiway and parking ramp no less.



On a long final heading south down the Bay towards the ice runway.



Happy to be on the ice at Alton Bay. The most difficult part was getting off the wing and on to the slippery ice without incident.



Quite a few planes were on the ramp when we landed and more landed after us



Co-pilot Bruce whose RV-3 is torn apart for restoration.



I was worried about the engine getting cold while we were at lunch -- it was in the low 20's -- so I put an old space blanket on the cowl, foil side facing down, then a thick blanket over that. It worked great; the cowl was was still warm when we returned. Of course the engine blanket is not Russian Special Issue like Vlad's but you can't have everything ....



The restaurant was just on shore where we enjoyed a hot lunch.



After departure, we checked out the big frozen Lake Winnipesaukee to the north before heading for home. Great day!

Looking great Bill! All RV models visited Alton Bay during last 6 years EXCEPT RV12. Governor Valcik how you hear?


This past weekend a Cubbie went a bit off. It will buff right out...

Per local scouts a Cirrus slid off to a snow bank couple days ago. Nothing bent.

Governor Valcik? That does have a ring to it. Al(bania) will be his Lt. Governor. He is looking for a campaign staff.

I wonder what makes the reporter think that's a Cuby?
