  • We had a pretty good turn-out for our last Learn to Fly & Picnic! There was a variable breeze but that didn't stop our intrepid pilots. We had all kinds of aircraft from small foam models to large pattern ships, and giant scale models. I even saw a Corsair out there! Bill & John cooked burgers & hotdogs. It was a good flying day: but aren't they all?
