I took Sky out of school a half-hour early to head up to Blakesburg, IA for the annual Antique Airplane Association Fly-In held each Labor Day weekend. The weather was good, we had a tailwind between 8 to 20 miles an hour pushing us so we made pretty good time. I flew over the field the first time and was amazed to see so many airplanes on-site already. "Where are we gonna park," I asked Skyler. We decided to go around again so I could take some pictures and then land.
We got parked by a couple other Fairchild's and a Gullwing Stinson and tied the airplane down. A quick visit to the registration booth and then we set up the tent. Then we went to have some warm food catered in by the local Hy-Vee. Let the fun begin!
