Access to DSMA’s Open – June 15, 2016

June 15, 2016: Flood water within the Barker reservoir dropped sufficiently to enable driving access & parking within DSMA’s today. A significant amount of water remains so RC pilots are advised to use caution as water surrounds the runway and covers the helicopter / multirotor flight area. The circular concrete control line flying pads are accessible and above water. For those that track it, the 91.6ft (radar sensor) benchmark water level in the Barker reservoir (access to DSMA’s) was reached at 1.15pm today.
