Thread: Skwentna Roadhouse fly in

  1. #1

    Default Skwentna Roadhouse fly in

    Just got off the phone with Cindy at the roadhouse. All is a go for tomorrow rain or shine!! Try to arrive before 12:30. The flying demonstrations (STOL, flour bombing, etc) start at 1300. Any participants in the demonstrations will park on the apron (registration is 11:00-13:00). Non-Participants park at the west end of the runway outside the lights. There will be folks directing planes to parking spots. Stay for the after party pig roast $32.00. Live band (No Wake), Midnight Sun beer. Hope to see you all there.

    A good time was had by all. They had a record turnout of over 95 planes. Definitely mark your calendars for next year. It just keeps getting bigger and better!

    Here is the bush class video. There was a 4-6mph tailwind during the experimental and bush classes. Figure that in and they were pretty impressive.

    Here is the light touring class. They swapped ends of the runway so they had a slight headwind. That made for the touring planes to have shorter distances than the bush planes...

    And finally the heavy touring class. We had some camera difficulties so there are several planes that didnt get any footage...
