    It would be a nice place to visit. a little harder to get into and out of then able island. There are plenty of videos taken from planes landing there if you do a google search on "flying into Gaston's" several will pop up. It is a one way in and out of the place so technique comes to play getting on the ground and back into the air. We would have to carefully plan spacing and parking would be down the side of the runway. I think it would hold 30 planes pretty easy if they did not arrive all at once.

    I took the pictures of the parking available at Gastons for those whom never been there. If we did a bacfest flyin we would have to line up down the runway, the 5 or 6 spots with tie down are first come first served and most likely will have over night guest already in them. Takeoff is back down the runway making a right turn out following the river till you have enough altitude to clear the bluffs on all sides. Not hard to do and looks worse than it is until you have done it once. We maybe should dig up a video or make one next spring on flying into and out of the place. Hmmm might have time to catch fish also.
