Second Annual Middle Finger Fly-In

We had a good time. I showed up on Friday and left on Saturday since the winds weren't looking good for Sunday, but we got in a good flight Saturday morning.

Some forum members were there, including of course Walt (Waltm), Jeff (Carwasher), Kelly (Riceman), Corrie (Mrs. Riceman), Craig (Sharpcf) & Mike (mikermudd). Hopefully I'm not missing anyone!

A few guys flew Friday afternoon, but it was bumpy. You can tell by the way Bobby is holding on in the back seat when flying with Walt! I'm sure Walt has made a few people do that in smooth air, but this time it wasn't his doing!

A few planes showed up, including my friends Chris and Bill in their 172. There was a nice Luscombe, an A-36 Bonanza, another 172, and a Commander.

The Trestle Board Lodge of Boles Home fed us Friday night and the Boy Scout Troop 392 was there Saturday morning to provide breakfast.

All in all, great turnout, great friends, and great food. Thank you Walt and Rachel!!

This was about the only thing flying in the heat of the day! It's controlled by an iPhone and has two cameras.

Ummm... this will forever be known as Pecker Hill.
