ONE spectacular day at Antique Airfield, Iowa

I’m at the 2015 AAA/APM Fly-in at Antique Airfield, Iowa, and have been taking in all the eye-popping taildraggers all day. This place is incredible, the people are awesome, and there’s no where I’d rather be. Did I mention I hopped a ride with Dan Wilkins in his 1941 Waco UPF-7 …. his OSH award winning UPF-7? What an incredible flight …. and yes, I took the stick and did a little manhandling of this big, beautiful, and very gentle bird. In between I snapped some shots and took a quick video, just to prove my good luck.

I wonder if Dan Wilkins ever tires of posing in front of his drop dead gorgeous Waco UPF-7? NOPE!

I bumped into people all day long. Jessica Voruda was the first LadiesLoveTaildraggers member sporting her LLT tshirt just like me!

And I got a kick out of this little guy and his tshirt "We Fly Topless". A good 92 degree day to do it
