The summer fly-in season is rapidly winding down and it has been a beautiful one. The Antique Aircraft Association fly-in was held over Labor Day weekend in Blakesburg, Iowa and the weather was perfect in eastern Iowa. The following weekend brought the Midwest Antique Aircraft Club (MAAC) fly-in up to Brodhead, Wisconsin and equally beautiful weather prevailed. A highlight of the event was celebrating Dick and Patsy Jackson’s 65th wedding anniversary at the fly-in.
The same weekend the 44th Annual Greenville International Fly-In took place in beautiful Greenville, Maine. At least three of our chapter members attended, including Alan Goodwin, Gerry Hanscom and Gerry Peterson. Our monthly meeting on Tuesday, September 12th will feature a slideshow presentation of the Greenville Fly-In presented by Gerry Peterson. Hopefully all will be able to attend and enjoy the recap of the event.
As usual we will have our EAA 225 BBQ prior to the presentation. The dinner will start at 6PM and the presentation to follow at 7PM.
This month also brings us to the first of our fall Young Eagles events. The first will be on Saturday, September 23rd at Southern Maine Aviation in Sanford, Maine. The time of the event is from 9AM to 2PM. Following 2 weeks later will be our last Young Eagles rally of the year at Skyhaven Airport in Rochester, NH. Hopefully we can provide some beautiful fall foliage flights to many Young Eagles.
Come out and enjoy the slideshow and some delicious airport fare.
Happy building and safe flying,
EAA 225 Chapter president
