Sea Planes On Lake Havasu

Every Tuesday morning (weather permitting) a group of radio control plane enthusiasts gather on the shore of Lake Havasu to fly. I attended two such gatherings and was amazed at the variety of aircraft that they put in the air.

All the way from these two planes made from Styrofoam (with an electric motor attached) to a scaled model of a real airplane (below).

The plane below is what they called a Flying W.

When a plane has a malfunction, the pilot gets in a boat that is standing by and retrieves the plane.

Even a PBY flew in to pay us a visit.

They hauled it off the lake (below) to do some much needed repairs.
