2017-05-13 UteRC Lincoln Beach Float Fly

The UteRC Association held its Annual Spring Float Fly at the shallow shore of Lincoln Beach on Utah Lake. Weather was cool with a slight breeze that picked up around Noon and finally drove us off the beach as lake water was being blown into our dry parking area. Seven pilots flew float planes successfully, but one flight ended in a spectacular dunking. Rick Marshall's wife brought a batch of home-baked chocolate chip cookies for the famished fliers and visitors.

At the invitation of the Utah State Aeromodelers, members of USA and the UteRC clubs gathered for another indoor Fun Fly on Feb. 18th.
