    Weather was perfect for some AZ pilots (and one California interloper) to gather at Hangar 24 brewpub at the Lake Havasu City airport last Saturday. Good times were had by all!

    Video of our arrival into and takeoff from Havasu on Saturday:



    At 3:50 in the video you can see, just above the airplane's nose, the arches of the London Bridge.

    Can also be seen in your second picture along with the shadow of the old runway on the island. That runway was not aligned well with the prevailing wind, but I liked landing there.

    Had I known Frank was going, I'd have tagged along. :p
