Everyone,
We had our swap meet on Valentine's Day and I was able to share a few airplanes with some people and also create some storage room in my hangar for new projects. Will need this as I have the Jamison, the Chippy and a Ringmaster coming online this Spring. So this was a good thing. The weather was clear and the winds relatively low so I strapped the ski on the Flitestreak and went out for a couple flights. I think the coolest thing about flying on the snow is doing the touch and ski to try and make a full lap. I can do about 3/4 lap but the uneven snow usually makes the airplane jump from place to place. Still was a good time for the 2 flights I did. Last run ended a little early with the ski digging in as I was trying to stay on the snow. No damage except for a cracked landing gear strap. Good fun all around.
John
