HATBOX FLY IN 2016

by Bill Holland   October 9, 2016

The annual Hatbox Fly In at Hatbox Field in Muskogee, OK was held October 7th - 8th. This is an annual event hosted by the TRAMPS R/C club. Over 40 pilots from Arkansas, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas attended the two day event. The TRAMPS get outstanding support from the City of Muskogee making this a must attend event. Great food and over $1000 in pilot prizes. Friday morning pilots were greeted with early rain followed by overcast skies and strong north winds. Later in the afternoon the winds calmed down and blue sky was the norm. Saturday was absolutely beautiful with sunshine and light winds! The skies were filled everything from WW1 to jets all day. The traditional Dawn Patrol flight launched at 7:15am with a 8 WW1 aircraft awakening those camping on site! District 8 VP Lawrence Harville attended Friday. Two other AVPs from District 8 also attended in addition to myself. They were Olen Rutherford from Arkansas and Johnny Hunt from Texas. Congrats to the TRAMPS for another great event this year.
