Early Early Arrivals at the Lady Taildraggers Flyin!

It’s too early to tell how our Lady Taildraggers & Friends Fly-in is going to shake out this year but so far there are 4 of us! Hey, it’s only Wednesday and early arrivals don’t officially start till tomorrow.

Jean & Jen from Texas arrived today!

The FIRST four lady taildragger pilots!!

I had an early flight from Baker Field this morning. I flew Chuck Avon down to Murray Field to pick up his Tcraft then we did a lose formation the 55 miles into Savannah. Lovely flight!

Chuck & Shannon, of course!

We didn’t expect to see the Tracy’s already but they got in early afternoon. They didn’t hang out long though, just enough time for a hot dog and a quick shower then off to visit friends in Memphis? They’ll be back in the morning.

Bill & Yvette Tracy popped in

And me of course!

Yep, you bet I'm here!

Shannon's ready to get on with it!

Fly Safe. Get here when you can!!

    Plan to arrive some time Saturday morning if the weather has cleared just in time to see every one fly out :-(.

    Whoo, wind and rain at 5:45 today! Luckily we got everybody in hangars and the only thing that didn’t fare too well was the big yellow tent. Nothing going on in there yet anyway so all is well. We’re actually having a GREAT time so far and hope everyone that’s trying to get here can get the job done tomorrow or Saturday morning. Rusty, the Poker Run pilot briefing is 10:15, maybe 10:30 at the latest with the first aircraft departing about 11:00. Montille’s doing amazing things for breakfast so get here early if you’re hungry! Worth the trip!!

    Finished up the (two month) annual today. Looks like a Sat morning arrival. What time is the fly out gonna get started? We hope to get there early to avoid seeing everyone leaving. Anybody need a round motor wakeup?

    I hope you gals aren’t getting too wet! I’m counting down the hours at work, tinkering with flight plans and W&B, and noticed it is raining on you!

    I hope I can get Mark moving early. See you tomorrow afternoon!

    I’m packed and ready for an early morning departure, but may have to leave a little later if that front stalls out at all – I’ll be on my way soon!

    Engine overhaul is still in progress – engine mount issues – so 94Bravo will sit this one out. I, on the other hand, am hitchhiking over on Saturday courtesy of a kind neighbor with a Bonanza. I sure look forward to meeting everyone in person.

    We have IFR enroute to TN, so I’m scrapping that direction. We’re going to Utah for a few days 🙁

    Motorcycle is packed and I’m leaving in the morning, to do some “low flying” to TN. 🙂 Hope to be pulling in Friday evening.
