New Years Day 2007 at the Schellville Aerodrome

Late morning fog started to look like it might cast a shadow over Sonoma Valley Airport, known to the locals as the Schellville Aerodrome, but around 11:00 a.m., it finally burned off.  The first aircraft to land was a CHP helicopter that was searching for an ELT signal coming from the area.  This signal was later found to be at another airport, apparently accidentally tripped.  As with past general meetings held at this airport, George Dray hosted the event in his hangar, along with spending some quality time behind the barbeque.  The canal that runs parallel to runway 7/25 allowed for Eric Presten to land his float-equipped Piper PA-16 Clipper on it with a comfort zone, which was quite interesting to watch.  While standing in line for lunch, I missed a nice flyby of a P-51D Mustang named "Lady Jo", and a Vans RV in British markings that took off around the same time, appearing to be chasing it.  I have posted just a sampling of some of the aircraft that flew into or out of Schellville on New Years Day.

There is text attached to all the photographs.
