I checked out the Upper Canada Zone Fun Fly today at the Smiths Falls Airport.

 

This was a two day event that brought together flyers from all around flying large scale sport planes, vintage warbirds and finely detailed scale jets.

 

The weather was great on Sunday and a large audience was treated to some pretty exciting high speed jet acrobatics as well as sport plane and even control line flying demonstrations. People who were inclined to try their hand at flying an R/C trainer were given the opportunity by using the buddy box.

 

Here is a picture I made with a combination of jpg files.

Went to the Rally of Giants today at the Arnprior Municipal Airport.

 

This event is on in Arnprior from June 26th to the 29th and looks like it will be a well attended event. There is a 5 dollar per car parking fee.

 

This is an annual summer event where large scale modellers from the US and Canada get together to show off their big airplanes in a non competative event. Apparently this will be the first time in 30 years that this event is being held in Canada.

Went to the LMR Glider Competition today and met a friendly bunch of guys who were having a lot of fun.

 

The weather was hot and sunny with only a few clouds and the pilots were catching some good thermals. The competition was done by the midday so luckily the torrential downpour that occurred in Ottawa later in the afternoon didn't affect things.

 

To see a larger picture of the competitors and their powered gliders click on this panoramic. It may take a while to load because it is a larger file size.

I went to the ORCC IMAC Competition today and there were plenty of spectators there.

 

The weather actually cooperated with the showers coming later on Saturday afternoon. The wind was kind of gusty but it didn't seem to phase the pilots too much.

 

This is a two day competition so hopefully the weather will hold up for Sunday although the forecast is calling for rain.
