Sunny skies for annual airplane event
Mother nature provided a glorious day and the Saint-Lazare Flying Club provided food enough formore than 1,000 people.
All in all a successful day, said Jack Brown, who along with his wife, Judy Cooper, is co-owner of Cooper Aviation, where the annual Saint-Lazare Fly-In Breakfast took place last Sunday.
Brown said more than 100 airplanes from across Québec, Ontario and the U.S. came in for the event that included helicopter and airplane rides for a fee.
But the day was a little noisier than anticipated. “For the first time in years, winds were from the north and that required all airplanes to take off over the town rather than the field so it seemed noisier than usual,” Brown explained.
In addition to the breakfast, that segued nicely into a hotdog lunch, the event also includedmany aviation related exhibits.
Cooper said the event went off without a hitch, thanks to members of the flying club, who worked tirelessly during the past severalweeks.
Meanwhile, the town of Saint-Lazare was also given credit for financial assistance, extra parking and fencing.
