Attending the Valdez STOL Flyin, I got to watch Dave Baldwin, & Jay Laxson as they arrived. Beautiful sunny cool day, not much wind couldn't be a better day. Too bad I had to come via Alaska Air!

We have a new KitFoxer in the Calgary Area. SwiftFox brought a ModelIV from Central Canada to Alberta last week. KitFox Jim and SwiftFox flew to the Sundre Mother's day FlyIn. I was there early and the three KitFox parked together close to the breakfast line.

After growlies we headed west to the Red Deer Forestry Strip. SwiftFox flew beside me and let me snap this shot.

Here the three of us enjoy the view.
Great Morning Flying.

Short Video of the Model IV flying beside me.

By the way more people were checking out the KitFoxes than other planes at the breakfast.

Hey Norm, glad to see you and Jim got to meet up with Jeremy! All the planes look good in a nice row like that. I don't get jealous very often but man I wish I had a plane finished to come join you guys. Soon! Looks like Jeremy is enjoying his new purchase.

Jeremy said "Why didn't I do this years ago"
A trip to Parkland was mentioned with two or three KitFoxes so Natalie can join in on the FUN......

Default NE Victoria in Autumn (Fall)

A great flight this morning with Craig (Doc68). We decided to fly up to Corryong and then to the Murray River which forms the border between NSW and Victoria. We then flew down the river at a few hundred feet - beautiful!
Craig is now planing to get larger tyres for his KF4 and we look forward to some more off field adventures - just thought I would share a little of our part of the world - is you wish to look closer at the area just type in Corryong, Victoria to Google earth and yo will find the Murray River to the Nth a few miles.

cheers

ross

The Murray is looking a little narrow in parts Ross, but there's plenty green stuff about. Nice photos as always.

Flight through the Canadian Rockies. Some pretty beautiful glaciers. Some pictures taken at 11,500'. With just me onboard I was getting 600fpm that high up!
