Default Valdez Fly In

The annual Valdez Fly In was May 6th through the 8th this year. My wife and I flew our RV8 in for the big day, May 7th. It was a beautiful clear day for a flight through the Chugach Mountains and over Prince William Sound. Here are just a few photos.

Even the heavy iron can compete in the short take off and landing competition.

Thanks for reporting Burke. I was following the flyin on Supercub forum but there wasn't much posted. It looks like you had excellent weather.

Default Super STOL

A Just Super STOL won the LSA class. Check out the landing, just about the length of the plane
