Here is a link to an article by Field and Stream Magazine about fish planting by the Division of Wildlife by the pilot and airplane that dropped the load of water on our flying field Saturday.

It looks like a memorable day for your guests and your members. You should be commended for your efforts. The sound of that SNJ in real time must have been awesome. I'm impressed that you were able to get such participation from the full size aviation community.
