Updates at bottom!!!
FD44 - Eagles Nest Airpark with both land and water runways, so both land and seaplanes are welcome! Last year we had almost 30 seaplanes and at least half that many landplanes landed on the grass strip. Lets do it again!
Come join us between 10:30 am to 3 pm. We will be getting food so please RSVP so that we can get a approximate head count. Please, NO PETS! Also, food, tables, fire department, etc are getting paid for by donations, so please bring some cash to put in donation bucket located next to food table.
Bomb drop contest at end will be for bragging rights (possibly a prize).
Frequency at FD44 is 123.15 which will be monitored by ground crew and will help guide to parking spot.
Julie Fetcko, albatrosslady.com, lives at Eagles Nest fly-in and is welcoming us again. The Albatross may be leaving soon, so it may be the last time to see it at Eagles Nest.
For those of you who haven't been here, see below pictures. Amphibians can land on water and then use wheels to go up the ramp and park. Water level is very high and great for ramp. Please park in line adjacent/parallel to North end of land runway. (see pictures)
Updates will be posted here on this page, so check back at this page on the day of event as I may post anything pertinent on here.
We have someone bringing 50 grapefruit for bomb drop.
