On May 17th, Sporty’s held its annual fly-in. Roy asked me to tag along with him and his friend Billy Burdette and I gladly accepted! It was quite a windy day, but the turn-out was decent. The free hotdog was great as usual. There were several vendors there headlined by Cessna’s showing the Cessna 400. I also spotted a very nice looking Comanche 250.
Just across the runway from the Sporty’s complex is a very nice Warbirds museum. Visiting it is a must-do when spending a day at I69. Inside are some really well restored vintage aircraft that are all in flyable condition – at least those that are fully assembled. They are in the process of working on a P-40 from New Zealand, a Focke-Wulf WF190, and an FG-1D Corsair. What a fun day trip!
