Even in the south, cold air dips. Isaac Smith captured himself just before enjoying the wind chill on the shores of Lake Lanier, just north of Atlanta, Georgia.
A group of Canadian flyers show their robustness by braving the snow, ice and cold for a winter romp in the Great White North. Frank Savignac tells us “who needs beaches, warm weather, We do! We’ll see ya in Florida Polk City!” Pilots flying this New Brunswick, Canada site were Roger Harris, Mark Dean and Frank. Thanks for sharing and we’ll all look forward to the March Florida warm-up.
Joe took off and wondered why everyone on the field was waving so wildly at him. Then he looked at his wing and saw way: he’d snagged the windsock from Arizona’s Phoenix Fly-In on launch and it was still following him around. He landing uneventfully soon after the discovery. After Joe was safely on the ground, we all had a good laugh about it, but there was quite the sense of urgency until after he landed. Interestingly, Joe says he didn’t even notice it while flying.
