Apple Valley Fun Fly

The Apple Valley Flyers held their fun fly this weekend, on Sunday. Saturday was rained out-just about the only day of rain in the past 5-6 weeks. (Rest the the time it's been mostly HOT AND VERY HUMID).
Weather on Sunday was not the best either-low cloud with some fog and lite drizzle. Hence attendence was down, approximately 12 to 15 pilots. Will post pics in my album when developed.
Best crash while I was there was an ugly stick going into the corn field just west of the Nw-Se runway. The recovery team was SOAKED

Hi Argus,

Looking forward to seeing the pics.

The first weekend of August is always a busy one for flying in the Atlantic Zone, in NS its the AVF, in NB it's "Pokemoche" and in NF it's "Festival of Flight" in Gander.

I haven't received any info on Pokemoche, however I'm sure it too was a great event.

The Festival of Flight went well 37 pilot's registered lots of planes and helis.

4 "incidents" on Saturday. One plane flown through sun, when pilot regained visual it was too late, total write off. Battery pack failure in a trainer no damage to plane. Wings folded on an ARF, totaled. An DF overshot the runway considerable damage to one wing and nose of fuse.

Excluding these the weekend was a complete success with a well run flightline and impound. Saturday also had 3-400 spectators, TV and radio interviews etc. Great promotion for the hobby/sport.
