n Blacksheep community project, our two miles of Hiway 36, mile marker 57 to 59.
Today was very windy with steady 32 to 34 mph winds. Despite the wind, we were able to start with a little airshow and then allow many WWP and DAV veterans and their families enjoy flying a r/c plane. Rege Hall flew his PAU 50cc Extra 300SP, Parker Hall flew his Whiplash E helicopter and Flex Inovations Extra 300, John Louden flew his Outlaw E and Ryan Jones started and taxied his turbine Mirage for the crowd. Thanks so much to every Blacksheep who attended and helped Mandee Mikulski and Tony Stillman, they organized a great event.
