An unexpected overnight snowfall left about three inches of light snow on top of the white stuff dropped by Wednesday’s storm, so the field was in perfect shape for Saturday’s Groundhog Chili Ski Fly-In. Low clouds in the morning cleared up by about 11:00 a.m. and we ended up with about 14 airplanes on skis at Brodhead Airport. It was plenty cold but good flying weather.
Here is a video compilation of a quick flight around the patch in Bill Liimatainen’s Aeronca Champ, with an opening scene of a visiting Citabria on Friday. Direct link to YouTube HERE.
