Fly-in News!

Thank you to all the planes that flew into Alberni this past sunday.

We had 58 planes in total fly in and 162 people tour the Martin Mars.

Pat Riley of Powell River won the 50/50 draw. Pat was a deserving winner as he has been to all four of our Fly-in's. Congratulations Pat!

Thank you to the Flying Tankers for their continued support each year. Special thank you's to Base Manager Terry Dixon, Pilots (drivers) Steve Wall, Steve Stackhouse and John deBourcier for making the tours very enjoyable. Awesome job guys!

Coulson Group of Companies deserves a big THANK YOU for lending us their bus and van to get you guys to the Bomber Base. Also they allowed us into the hangar, that was storing their helicopter, to view the Martin Mars video.

Thank you to Susan who volunteered to organize the boat loads out to the Mars.

Last and not least thank you to all the Alberni Flying Club members who come out and volunteer to make sure that this event happens every year.

I will post some photos in the next couple of days.

See everyone next year,
