Another Warbird Fly In in the books. We were treated with wonderful weather right up till the rain took over shortly after lunch. Although gray skies prevailed, temperatures were mild and light wind right down the runway. Special thanks to all our guests who attended and to all the club members who really pitched in to make this another successful event. We had 34 registered pilots and 60 people enjoyed the cookout lunch.
Flying started early and a lot of flights were made. Also, seen quite a variety of aircraft and airmen. We held the pilots raffle after the after lunch rain started with every registered pilot receiving a drawing prize.
