Winter flying has started

On Friday Tim and I made the trek down to Springfield for some flying.

The 304 is being stored in a giant hangar with a concrete floor so assembly could not have been any easier, except for getting the tape to stick to the ice cold glider. Walter's PW6 stays assembled and is sitting on dollies so all you have to do is roll it sideways out of the hangar.

There were three flights all together and I think the best (Walter and airport manager Larry) was to around 5000 feet. There might have been some weak wave helping them get there.

A good time was had by all, and I recommend taking advantage of Walter’s willingness to tow us during the winter months. It’s really been great fun.
