EAA Fly-In at Fremont County Airport

This year saw a great event from the opening EAA pancake breakfast at 7:00AM to the closing at 1:00PM. Our club was well represented and we had a static display of many of our planes and a table where we handed out magazines and information sheets about our club with our web site. I noted a number of interested parties and we may pick up some new members from having our display. We had conversations with the Civil Air Patrol members and I believe that will develop into more activity between our two groups. Also we made contact with the veterans home and they want to bring out the vets when we are having a flying session.

A number of the Sky Corral club members came out for this event. This year the event organizers were unable to provide us with an area to demonstrate R/C flying which was unfortunate because folks came by our table asking when we were going to fly as we did last year.

The show started off with an arrival of this Sea Fury making a low level pass over the runway in excess of 300 mph and then landing. It is a monster of an airplane. And the folks loved to walk around it.

The Renegade Demonstration Team lined up

The highlight of the show was the acrobatic performance of Don Nelson flying his Russian Sukhoi Su-26. It was something to behold.

A great time was had by all.
