Arlington Fly-in Fly-out Dinner

Here's what the parking ramp at Friday Harbor (in the San Juan islands) looked like when a dozen canards descended upon it for dinner last Thursday.

Thank you GlennBob and Bill.  T'was cool seeing canard aircraft returning to the traffic pattern in elements of two or three, strobe lights blinking in the failing light.  

That area (the San Juan islands) is just gorgeous in the summertime and is littered with lots of 3000-4000' paved strips (at sea level) begging for further exploration.  After Arlington we flew to Sequim for a couple of days -- 20 minutes by EZ or a few hours by car and ferry.  Next year I'll consider flying out earlier in the day, meeting the group for dinner, and returning to the fly-in before dark.

Here's another Arlington picture: this rare VariViggen belongs to Charles Spinelli who presented a forum on his homebrew data recorder (with playback to Google Earth and X-planes).  In the left you can just make out Gordon Hindle's VariEze.
