There still is a plank club. Flys in the Hindenburg hanger. There is a scale version of an aircraft carrier in there and a blimp gondola that was used in a movie. Awesome place with awesome history.

BTW the floor of the hanger is specially designed to eliminate static charges... you know why.

Here is the website of the club that flys there...

http://www.ecim.net/

Believe it or not they started flying in the hangers years before the Hindenburg disaster..

"In 1926, a small handful of modelers were given permission from Commander Charles E. Rosendahl (the father of airship development in the U. S.) and Base Commanding Officer E. S. Jackson, to use the newly finished hangar at Lakehurst for Indoor Free Flight Modeling. Through the remaining portion of that year and the next couple, Indoor Modeling was able to develop in this unlimited space."

I think the plank club still flys in the hanger. They are a rubber band free flight club. The only way I know is that they have events listed in the back of the AMA Magazine. That is some base, and is going to be a Super Base in the near future when combined with Fort Dix and Mc Guirre AFB. Tom

I made a mistake once, but I was wrong?

All of those bases are actually physically connected. Jersey is an interesting state.
