Welcome to the Wheeler's Westfield Airport Fly-In Website!
Bomb Drop & Carrier Landing Event Page

This page shows the Bomb Drop and simulated Aircraft Carrier landing event.  The object for the bomb drop is to fly 100 feet over the target, and drop your bomb (bean bags).  The winner is whoever gets the closest to the target in two attempts.  The object to the simulated Aircraft Carrier landing is to see how close you can get to the start of the landing mark.  If you are too short, you would crash into the carrier.  If you are too long, you would not land on the carrier.  It takes real piloting skill to maneuver your aircraft and land on a short runway.

Here are some bomb drop attempts:
