National Model Aviation Day Report

It was a windy day to celebrate outdoors, but that is what model aviators do. We had about 12 folks to show up. Lyle and Larry brought planes and actually flew them. It was good to see Bill and Brett there, mobile under their own power. Brett flew Lyle's plane and gave a good demo of how to fly in windy conditions..
