I didn't think to look at the forums until just now when I realized I'd caught Vlad and another nice RV on my camera.

Smile RV12 visits Alton Bay

Today checked one off the list by flying to Alton Bay. The Ice Runway and Seaplane Base (B18) in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire is unbelievable.



The airport is an ice runway during the winter and a seaplane base in the summer. Flight with one of my friends for breakfast and he knew a couple that met us there.



The recommended ice grippers for your shoes are a must. Breakfast then stopped by Facet Jewelers, signed the flight guest book, pick up a sertificate for landing @ B18, very friendly people.





Calm winds landing and the ice was in great shape. I had a nice tail wind for the return, ground speed 153 kts in my RV12.

Not a good day for a fellow RV'er today.
Pretty sure I chatted with them briefly today.
Glad they are okay.

Video from today's event at Alton bay on YouTube. Conditions changed dramatically in 24 hours. Thoughts go out to our fellow pilot, glad he's ok.

Default Alton Bay

Sorry to see this! My daughter and I flew to Alton Bay this morning for breakfast and to walk around the Ice Festival. I visited with this pilot and passenger for a while. Glad to hear they weren't severely injured. Planes can be repaired. Our thoughts are with them.

Video made by one of my autopilots. He is a talent not only in manipulating controls. Enjoy
