Apr. 29 - For the first time the AOPA sweepstakes Waco UPF-7 is at Frederick, Maryland, its home airport, having arrived there via Lakeland, Florida, where it was on display at the Sun `n Fun EAA Fly-In. The 750-nm flight took 8 hours and 6 minutes of flying time. On the clock, the airplane lifted off from Fort Pierce, Florida, at 8:33 a.m. on a Saturday and arrived overhead Frederick at 7:15 p.m. There wasn't much time for eating along the way, and vending machines provided the menu. Stops included Fernandina Beach, Florida; Orangeburg, South Carolina; and Danville, Virginia, before reaching Frederick. An article on the flight by AOPA Pilot Senior Editor Al Marsh will appear soon in Pilot. You'll learn some valuable tips about open-cockpit flying, like how to keep your gloves from flying overboard.
