News from the Orcas Island Fly-out

Yippee, the group fly-out to Orcas Island was a go, as of Friday. Looks like Summer Martell & Chrissy Bishop had a great flight in Summer’s 1931 Student Prince biplane. Hope to hear more soon. Here’s a few shots from Summer & Chrissy.

“We arrived today in the Student Prince, there’s another Citabria, A Glastar and a Cub too. Camping at the airport. Gorgeous starry sky framed by flying wires.”

Loading up to take the “Chrissy and Summer show” to the San Juans!


Chrissy “let’s get on with it!”


Gorgeous flight


Welp, forgot the dang tent poles! Who cares? We improvise.


At Orcas Island

And from the middle of the night ….. “Having fun counting shooting stars under the flying wires!” Summer Martell

Probably more but so far I’ve heard arrivals from Judy McCarthy, Kati Ganzer, Judy Phelps, Wilma Melville, Gail Schipper, Anna Schwisow, Summer Martell & Chrissy Bishop. There’s the Student Prince, a Citabria, a Glastar, a Cub and a ferry ride hop. Not sure about the others but will no doubt hear more soon.

    Yes Dan, but actually three factory built Princes came out of the factory. Mine is the third and last.

    Orcas looks fabulous and hope to make it there later this fall or next year. My honey is only home for 1 weekend before he heads to turkey, France and UK for 3 weeks. Have a great timr and please post photos of all the fun activities.

    Is that the single Student Prince that was build in 1931? I went to Wikipedia.
