THE ICE! ~ Feb.
3, 05 - Every flight is a new experience, and landing on the ice at Alton
Bay on Lake Winnipesaukee adds another dimension. Who knows, you might
see a beautifully restored Cessna 170. Here's Mike talking with Tony while
I take a few pictures of this sharp looking aircraft. In one of the pictures
the white dot is actually a snow machine coming down the bay. That's Tony
coming in on final. Incidentally, he did a 3 point landing and I think
he used 300 feet or maybe less. At any rate, it wasn't very much.

30, 05 - What
a beautiful day to go flying, I said. Hey, why don't you tryout the ice
airport at Alton Bay Tony (OVA) said. Mike said I'll go with you!
How could I say no. Here's my chance to land at a sea plane airport with
wheels. At least that how it shows up on my sectional. Check it out
it's B18 on the sectional chart. While we were there, we met up with Tony
(another Tony) and his Cessna 170 that's been beautifully restore by Tony
with I'm sure many hours of dedicated work. I'll be posting more pictures
showing some of Tony's 170 and the Ice airport. In this picture, we're
on final for 01, taken by my copilot Mike.
