Flying for fun! This was a great outdoor adventure, with a STOL CH 701 and CH 750 plane, landing and taking off from a gravel bar.
The CH750 is in standard configuration with stock wheels and tires, and a Jabiru 3300 engine, doing what it was designed to do! The custom CH701 is fitted with larger "Alaska Bushwheels" tires.

What beautiful scenery and weather. Gotta be California. It rains constantly here on the West Coat of Canada and it's cold. I think I'm gonna put the skis back on.
