Rockcliffe Canada Day Fly-in

COPA Flight 8 Webmaster Adam Hunt was at the edition of the Rockcliffe Flying Club's annual Canada Day event. As in past years the fly-in only attracted about half a dozen aircraft, despite the nice weather, although hundreds of people drove in for breakfast.

Maurice Prudhomme's Ottawa River Fly-in

COPA Flight 8's photographers, Michael Dixon and Nathalie Huard, were at Maurice Prudhomme's Ottawa River Fly-in, despite the warm weather. Michael reported:

Mo pulled his 25th fly-in off with a splash!! Actually, the runway was in good shape considering the previous day's weather. Mo had entertainment, his famous chili, a cake for the 25th and, as usual, many friendly pilots and friends. Nathalie preserved the day’s events with a variety of pictures for us to enjoy.
