There are some big birds for such a small airport that have been coming in and out lately. It has a 5300 foot runway. I could have sworn I saw a DC-9 on finals over the lake. If one drives by, there are some Lears and what looks like a Falcon and a GIV on the tarmac. There is definetaly a large rear-twin engine jet there as well. Could be DC-9 or Bac-1-11. Was this all for the Democratic National Convention? Any info would be great...

If it was last weekend, I wouldn't have been shocked if it was for the Nascar race at Loudon. Laconia seems a little out of the way (it's about 2.5 hours from Boston or so?) to really receive any DNC traffic.

Ahhh, right, it was Nascar last weekend. Also Britney Spears has a house on the lake and may come in and out by jet. I suppose it could also have been an Embraer or CRJ, but it doesn't look like one. Any other info?

Britney has a house on the lake?
Really?

I have always HATED that town since it's so miserable. Especially in the winter.
But there are two good things. The old cinema (do they still have it?!) and this one donut shop in the "business" part of town (where they had/have this big ugly factory).

P.S.: My worst memory was when I fell off of this carousel on that playground by the lake!

I think the Colonial Theater went out of business, though the donut shop is still there with the big ugly factory. I too have gotten sick and fallen off of the carousel at Opeechee Park... Anyway, thanks for the info guys...
