A group of South Coast pilots recently took advantage of this winter's cold conditions to use Snipatuit Pond as a landing strip. The pilots use charts provided by the United States Government to determine if the thickness of the ice is enough to support the weight of their airplanes. Pilot Ben Bailey, who lives on the shores of the pond and hosted this past week's get together, flies a seaplane off of the pond during warmer weather months. (Photo by Robert Chiarito).
