Two great grass strip fly-ins are about to happen and I’m planning on hitting them both this year!
- theÂ 2016 AAA/APM Invitational Fly-in, IA27, Antique Airfield, Blakesburg, Iowa (August 31 – Sept 5)
- the Triple Tree Fly-in, SC00 Triple, Tree Airport, South Carolina (Sept 7 – Sept 11)
First up Labor Day weekend is Blakesburg, Iowa, home of the Antique Airplane Association whose motto is “Keep the Antiques Flying”. Believe me – they do! Watching incredible antique aircraft flying non-stop at this annual event is reason enough not to miss it. LadiesLoveTaildraggers will have a Meet-n-Greet Ice Cream & Pie Social (all local homemade!) at 3:00 Saturday, September 3 on The Porch. Come hangout with fellow & future lady taildragger pilots. Vote for your favorite featured aircraft in the LLT Ladies Choice Award, hear the latest news and share some laughs. LLT thsirts will be available.
And the very next week, Sept 7 – 11, is Triple Tree, a.k.a. the 10th Annual Triple Tree Aerodrome Fly-in @ SC00 Woodruff, South Carolina. This one’s all new to me and I can hardly wait to touch down on their 7000′ manicured strip.
If you’re looking to me for guidance about this flyin you’ll be disappointed but I can head you in the right direction. I’ve heard wonderful things and am ready to take the plunge over the Smokey Mountains and find out for myself what it’s all about. Please post a comment here or on Facebook if you’re planning on attending and we’ll try and figure a time and place to meet!!
