34TH ANNUAL LONDON BRIDGE SEAPLANE CLASSIC
A premier floatplane event
PAUL STENBERG

Each November, when much of North America has seen the first frost of the upcoming winter, there is one group of RC’ers who never worry about the snow. Members of the Desert Hawks RC Club of Lake Havasu City, Arizona are renowned for their love of seaplanes and offshore flying. With temps in the 70s and 80s, what better way to forget about the winter than to take part in this exciting and very specialized RC event at Windsor Beach State Park. The Annual London Bridge Seaplane Classic on the shores of Lake Havasu is considered by many to be the largest float fly in the country. And this year’s event did not disappoint. Unlike the 2018 Classic, which was hampered by severe winds and 6- to 15-inch breakers on the shore, this year’s attendees enjoyed perfect weather conditions for all three days of the event. Those who made their annual trek were extremely happy with the amount of flying that took place.
