You can see the minutes of the Sept. 2014 meeting here: http://eastbay-rc.blogspot.com/2014/09/concord-model-engineers-minutes.html
Looks like the National Parks are off limits for RC aircraft of all types.
“US National Park Service Director Jonathan Jarvis signed a policy memorandum in June prohibiting launching, operating or landing any unmanned aircraft on any park service property.
“‘We have serious concerns about the negative impact that flying unmanned aircraft is having in parks, so we are prohibiting their use until we can determine the most appropriate policy that will protect park resources and provide all visitors with a rich experience,’ he wrote in a statement at the time.”
Most of the second video was shot at the Lime Ridge Open Space at the end of Court Lane where club members fly RC. It was done by Jonathan Singh, I have added his YouTube video channel, RCDeparture, to our list of recommended web sites.
You can find the minutes for the July meeting here:
Dennis Romano found this website that depicts Bay Area airfields that were abandoned and in most cases have disappeared, including the original Concord Airport which was the Western terminus for mail flights and the Naval Weapons Station Field. Lots of pictures of “Golden Age” aircraft too.
For those that need a bit of inspiration (Thanks to Ding for the link):
An Avro Vulcan is still in flyable condition as reported here: http://navaltoday.com/2014/07/22/avro-vulcan-bomber-lands-at-royal-uk-naval-air-station-yeovilton/
Made me wonder, a lot more B-47s were built, but I don’t recall seeing or hearing of one still flying. Do know there is on display at Castle in Atwater.
