Snow day at the Zenith Aircraft factory

Flying the Zenith STOL CH 750 on six inches of fresh snow in Mexico, Missouri!
While skis are nice on snow, the large tires are well suited for the cold fresh snow on the runway at Mexico Memorial Airport.

Incredible beauty and performance. The crisp air must fun to fly in.

The only snow here in Florida is the kind in Miami that you get arrested for!  However, 75 degrees here lately and sunny. Now back to work on my Cruzer.

Our friend Bob Jones goes flying with the STOL CH 701 on skis in Alaska:

Based in Alaska, Bob's airplane is never on wheels. Skis in winter and floats in summer!
