Jun 2015 Fly the Lake Michigan shoreline with me in July!
I am sorry our LadiesLoveTaildraggers Texas fly-in had to be canned for weather but that doesn’t mean we can’t still do some fun flying together. Please join me, and EAA Chapter 1121, for a fantastic flight around Lake Michigan this July. We’ll fly the western route up the Wisconsin shoreline, rounding the top at St. Ignace/Mackinac Island and then flying southbound down the Michigan shoreline. We’ll spend 3 days on our adventure and overnight at Manitowoc, Wisconsin and St. Ignace, the upper peninsula of Michigan. I would LOVE for you to join our group. Fill out the Signup form below if you plan on joining us. Send email questions to LadyTaildraggers@gmail.com.
