Thursday at Triple Tree, SC Fly-in

People fly into Triple Tree because they like airplanes, but they stay because they like the people even more.

Well, we may not look like much, but my Rans S7 got me to Triple Tree. Photo by Yvette Tracy flying with me in their Supercub.

I am thrilled to report there are many lady taildragger pilots at Triple Tree. Meet Wanda Goodman from Virginia and her pristine Stinson Voyager. The paint job is fantastic and she credits her husband for the the spraying and herself for the prepping & taping. Great teamwork!

Angela Leedy flew her Cubcrafters Cub solo from New Jersey. She timed her departure to escape the hurricane arriving Triple Tree Tuesday, the day before arrivals were accepted. Luckily she found a spot to hang out till Wednesday!

Angela Leedy flew her Cubcrafters Cub solo from New Jersey. She timed her departure to escape the hurricane slamming New Jersey, arriving Triple Tree Tuesday, the day before arrivals were accepted. From what I hear, they are busy at Triple Creek cutting grass and getting all ready for the big event on Wednesday.  No problem, Angela had no problem finding an alternate spot to hang out till Wednesday!

Most pilots will never see the entrance to the gate from roadside. Triple Tree - it's an airport. It's a park. It's a destination!

I've never flown anywhere with park like aircraft parking & camping - that could accommodate 1,000 or more planes.
