Two Beech 18's made several passes Saturday morning.

Nice formation work!

An Interstate Cadet struggles to free itself from the soggy runway.

Blakesburg---Day 1

This years Blakesburg is very wet and soggy.

Raindrops hanging of Bob Jenkins Airmaster wing.

Sky got the picture of the day--me playing guitar with my friend Richard Hawley.

Between showers--you can see the rainbow over the blue Stearman.

We saw 5 deer on the drive back to the hotel.

This years AAA Blakesburg fly-in was severly impacted my multiple, heavy rainshowers leaving the grounds and runway muddy, soggy and in some spots, flooded.
Flying was cancelled Friday night and most of the day Saturday as the grass runway was too wet to support aircraft.
