Members met and flew at the A.L. Mangham Jr. Regional Airport Saturday morning July 16, 2011 because of the extreme afternoon heat.  It was a good turnout with planes in the air most of the morning.  Two guest pilots, David and son Connor, joined us, along with the rest of the family, to fly a newly acquired electric foam trainer.  Below are photos of the days events including many taken by David's children.

The Bozleys and club members in the shade!

The sequence of photos below captures the first takeoff of Dave and Connor's foam trainer.  Drew was at the controls but handed off to Dave.  We can all relate to the final outcome because we have all been there!  At least in the end Dave and Connor were able to laugh about it!

Most of the following photos were taken by Dave's son and daughters.  Connor got some excellent mid-air shots that look great!  One of the girls got a really good shot of Drew's Senior Kadet with a full scale Cessna in the back ground.  Don't forget to click on each photo to get an enlargement!
