2010 Fly-Ins: Lac Labelle, Qc
This fly-in is done on an ice runway, on a frozen lake about 60NM
north of Montreal. I returned this year but as a passenger, having
my first ride ever on skis, thanks to my good friend Martin. As
always, great ambiance, great food and many ski
equipped airplanes ! And lots of friends too !
Here are the pictures of this fine Fly-In and my ride in Martin's
fine Cessna 140 on skis:
