Jun 2018 Destination Flabob
With one full day under our belts, we are now firmly planted in the giant state of California. Our flight around the perimeter of America continues! We are overnight at a private airpark at 52CL Adelanto, just outside Victorville, California. Our hosts, Charlie and Amy Laird, great-grandson of Charles Laird and great-nephew of Matty Laird of the E. M. Laird Aircraft Company.Â (Think Swallow biplane)
Today we did a two-ship flight through the Cajon Pass to KRIR, Flabob Airport. Jim OBrien, president of EAA Chapter 1 Flabob, met us for breakfast at the Flabob Airport Cafe. For convenience sake, you have to like airport restaurants, and when a breakfast is as yummy as this one, you have to love them. Airport manager Beth LaRock soon joined our breakfast group, bringing a smile to everyone’s face with her giant coffee cup reading “Boss Lady”.
Tomorrow Santa Paula!!!
