Jayhawk Float Fly

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 Flyy is held at Clinton Lake boat ramp #7 in the Bloomington East Campground (Google map below). Float planes take off and land in the water, and fly over a sheltered area of Clinton Lake.

NOTE: Highway 458 from south Lawrence to Bloomington Campground is undergoing repairs. For best access to Bloomington Campground, take US 40 east to the Stull road. Turn left onto Stull road and drive to East 250 road, then turn south. Follow the signs to Bloomington East Campground. See the google map below.
