    Ice runway condition iffy for February 9 fly-in

    Call 603 875-3498 for the recording giving Alton Bay, New Hampshire ice runway conditions.
    There has been melting and standing water. When that refreezes the thin top layer of ice is a problem.

    If the ice runway is closed on Saturday February 9, 2019 the fly in will be moved a few miles away to Emerson Aviation at Laconia Airport (KLCI). 11am. Self serve fuel available.

    Join us and get lunch on the club, a genuine BAC tool bag or tool box, a BAC signal kit for downed aircraft, a BEECH BUM Tshirt. All while supplies last.

    If it is IFR the fly-in will be postponed. More details on Friday February 8th.

    Don't take the snowmobile near Alton Bay. Paul is fed up with people ruining the runway with snow machines. And he has a shotgun

    As long as it is VFR there WILL be a fly-in either on the ice at Alton Bay B18 or at the ramp of Emerson Aviation at KLCI Laconia, New Hampshire. If the ice is open - it is the ice.

    See posts below for incentives to join the group.

    Sat looks sunny but windy: 20-30 gusts 40 mph.

    If I didn't have other reasons keeping from going, the wind certainly would
