Winter airplaneWinter Birds.

Over the weekend I stumbled on a group of 6 private planes gathered for a casual fly-in at a local lakeside eating establishment.

If you’re on the lake during the winter months with your camera in your pocket you know that any color outside of the grey spectrum is in short supply.

The burst of color offered by this group of parked aircraft was tough to ignore.

I’m not a pilot but I’m sure these winter aviators were happy to take advantage of the newly improved lake surface as one great big airfield.

FYI, this area has a number of publicly accessible airports.

Here’s some data on each with a view, courtesy of Google Earth, of how a non-pilot-type, like myself, might imagine a landing approach at each location.
