Well nuts - I thought I was available, but the schedule is more complicated than I thought, so likely that I’ll miss this one - ya’ll have fun!

Default I'm out

Strong winds and low level winds shear in the LA area. I fly for fun. No need to get knocked about just for breakfast. Next time.

Default Great trip!

Hi All,

We had 4 RVs fly into O22 on Sunday from HAF/SQL home bases, and initially shut down by a friend's hangar on the turf runway. We chewed the fat too long and didn't make it over to the main ramp before a bunch (6+) of nice RVs departed. Sorry we missed you all .. I was looking forward to everyone; next time for sure!

Photos or it didn't happen:

Video, 2x real time on the flight out from HAF to O22:

Thanks M5fly for getting the ball rolling!

Default Round 2

Sounds like everyone had a great time! Since we weren't able to make it we're going to give it another shot this weekend. Saturday this time, still around 1030-1100.

If the weather cooperates we're also thinking about a day trip to Kern Valley Feb 12th. Throw that up on your calendar too if you like!

Looks like it was a beautiful day in Columbia. Sorry I missed it, the better half made some surprise lunch plans in Half Moon Bay to celebrate our birthdays. As you can see from the video posted it was just as amazing to fly West as it was for those that Flex East.

Next time I'll be for sure to check the "schedule" first.

Thanks for visiting KHAF! We love visiting RVs. Happy Birthdays!

We had a treat on the flight back ... NorCal cleared our flight right across the bay at 4000' on the return -- right thru the middle of the bravo and SFO finals. No ducking under and dodging VFR traffic through the Sunol gap and seagulls.
