The third or fourth Saturday in June brings one of our most popular events, the Jayhawk Float Fly. This is the only JMM event that takes place away from Clinton International Model Airport. The Float Fly is held at Clinton Lake boat ramp #7 in the Bloomington East Campground. Float planes take off and land in the water, and fly over a sheltered area of Clinton Lake.
