No mosquitos at my field today! Wind was blowing dogs off chains! I was flying backward for a while today, and not even really trying.

Re: Damn the Mosquitos!

We fly off the top of an old land fill.
If the methane doesn't knock you over the mosquitoes will carry you away.
There have been times when my plane has been quite a ways out that its hard to tell which mosquito I'm flying.
They're even out in the cold with their jackets on for crips sake!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Damn the Mosquitos!

Here is Fort McMurray, they are still out there. Up here the mosquitos are as big as your heli

I was flying my electric plane last night, trying to get some practice and they were eating me alive. Little buggers!

Hi Al,
I'm in Enfield, we've met before (you flew with my dad at your old field (Jules) and worked with my brother I believe..
I don't get the chance to get out to the Bladerunners field much these days (last time I was there it looked abandoned and a soccer-ball sized hornet nest was hanging off the canopy over the picnic tables (I took care of that ..) due to weather and work and 3 kids.. a chance for some backyard flying pretty much is all I get these days.
Is there another field I'm not aware of besides ASRCM in Shubie or SBR field in 9 mile river?
