Cold weather flying!

Cold weather flying!

Post  ian1954 on Sat May 09, 2015 10:56 am

I often read on this forum a significant amount of feeling against flying in the cold and snow.

See this



Especially the last five minutes.

Great vid! I've never met Windy.. but I'm hoping there's a slim chance he'll be at a N.E.S.T. fly-in next weekend in Wrentham, MA. Member Dave Cook is to receive a PAMPA Hall of Fame award that Saturday May 16th. Theme for the day will be borrowed from an article that Dave wrote; "Stunt in New England in the Good Old Days".. that was featured in Control Line World. Anyone having a connection to Stunt in New England is expected to attend and fly that day.

I plan on going and will try to shoot some stills and video.

Well some of us don't have much choice in the winter time. One can stay indoors or simply bite the bullet and ignore the cold. Smile

That looks cold! I would need a heated and very well insulated suit for that! The sea around Britain is cold enough in summer but winter.........!

My being originally a "Bostonian".. (well, close enough) I thought it fitting to post an annual tradition where the "L Street Brownies" take a dip in Boston Harbor on New Years Day.. since 1909.

I've visited Brisbane once in your winter time and went windsurfing, great place.
The locals offered to lend me a wetsuit, but I declined as it was like a regular summer to me... Smile
