One of the Scouts in attendance wanted to set in the recently completed restoration of the EAA Bi Plane.  He wanted to see what it would feel like to set in and move the controls of the airplane with his new knowledge of aircraft and their controls.

EAA 1218 Fly-In/Camp-Out June 2nd-4th at 1h5

 

Our Fly In/Camp Out was a success!  The weather cooperated and we had several airplanes fly in as well as some planes from the field who flew.  There were several people who either camped under their wing, or brought tents and campers.  Friday night before the band played, James Ennis gave some of the band members their first airplane ride in his Cessna 172. 

More pictures from the event are located in the Gallery Section of this website. http://www.1218.eaachapter.org/apps/photos/

Thanks to all of our donors and helpers who made this a success.
