Event Successful

In spite of a few delays due to low clouds and very light rain, our September 15, 2019 event was very successful.

We flew everyone who came, thanks to the generosity of quite a number of people who volunteered their time and airplanes.

We will likely schedule our next event in June 2020.


Professional photographers take pictures during the event. Find your photo in our photo gallery.
