Marlon Out Flyin’ – Boyceville
New prop, Let’s try it out!
I recently put a new Warp Drive prop on my Firefly. The wooden prop originally on the plane always seemed like it could use a bit more pitch. Adjusting the new prop took more patience and adjustments than I had imagined but I finally got it close to where I wanted it and gave up. By then the wind had come up and I am not sure I ready for that challenge yet.
A week or so later the weatherman said it should be nice and I decided to try a flight to Boyceville, WI.
My Firefly and Me Selfie.
Looking south form the end of the New Richmond Regional Airport towards the town.
A bit more of the East end looking south.
A long barn or pen with some kind of pond.
A small cemetery just north of Glenwood City. It looks small but it appears to have space available.
The “Round Bale Barn”.
Clouds and the big Antenna thing.
Looking east through Boyceville, WI at the runway.
Looking back west at the town.
Here it is! Boyceville Municipal!!!.
Just outside of the airport they have a very nice memorial.
I was hoping for tasty gas station hot dog when I got here but the station didn’t have any so I had to settle for a candy bar and a pop.
The airport was quiet with no one around. I checked the gas and headed back to New Richmond.
The local school track.
A farm buried back in the trees.
No story is complete without “Crop Circles”.
And back to New Richmond to end a fun flight around Wisconsin.
Nice story! I like the pictures you took. My Parents were born in Wisconsin and we visited there many times when I was young. It is interesting to me that the farming techniques seem to be the same as here in Kansas.
That Kolb of yours is a sweet looking machine. If I didn’t have my Quicksilver, Kolb would be the next on my list or at least in a tie with the Aerolite 103.
