Arcadia (X06) and towards Lakeland (LAL)

Continuing Tuesday 10th April…

Just need the fog to lift…

No federal money was afforded, nor any local government funds made available to the group. The work was all done by a small number of volunteers, mostly pilots or ex-pilots.IMG_0136The Friends of Arcadia Airport should be very proud of what has been accomplished, and they deserve the support of pilots from across the United States and even those abroad.27567631008_1a0f093e62_k.jpg

I wonder if the BZIM was the first international visitor to the camp-ground?

Not long after sunrise, George arrived, knowing the BZIM was grounded by the fog. An offer to go for breakfast was accepted along with a visit to a gas station (that’s a petrol station in UK lingo). 😉

A topping up of unleaded fuel, using the BZIM’s ‘ferry’ tank, helped to balance out the Avgas/unleaded fuel proportions. If the Rotax 912 80hp can be fed with at least a 50% proportion of unleaded fuel, the oil change schedule is every 100 hours. If more than 50% is Avgas, then the oil change schedule is every 50 hours.

Eventually, snippets of blue sky could be seen above, so it was time to say goodbye to Arcadia and George. If the snow’s continue in the northern states, it might be Au Revoir.
