My other hobby.

I don't think I have mentioned that I am a member of the Fort Bragg Fog Busters Model Aviation Club.  I started flying model airplanes when I was a Junior in High School back in what: 1957?.  We're talking tissue and dope control line 1/2 A Snapper.  Gobs of fun.  Then I was away from the hobby for years and finally reconnected when my kids gave me a RC plane for my retirement gift seven years ago.   I discovered there was a RC club in Fort Bragg and joined in order to have someone help me learn how to fly it.  A lot had changed in forty-six years!!

We usually fly Saturday and Sunday mornings at our flying site out Little Valley Road five miles north of town.  We are making plans to host an Air Show this coming June.  Here is a slideshow I put together of photos taken over the years at our flying site to give you an idea of what we are up to.

The photo is of my friend Dick's "Too Much" that he designed and built.
