New Years flight
It is a tradition with members of the Tracy Skyliners Radio Control model airplane club to brave the frigid weather to get the first flights of the year in.
Past New Years Day flights have seen fog, gale force winds, rain and freezing temperatures to test the mettle of the fliers. This year club members were greeted with sunshine, calm winds and mild morning temperatures for picture perfect flying weather.
Among the dozen fliers who brought airplanes out was John Elliott who launches his electric motor-powered aerobatic ship into the morning sky.
