Sun­ny skies for an­nual air­plane event

L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

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.

The 22nd an­nual Saint-La­zare Fly-In Break­fast went off wi­thout a hitch last Sunday.
