She flew a Lockheed 10, a sister ship to the... Read More »

Most Interesting Women, Blakesburg, Iowa

When you go to a fly-in, I hope you take the time to get to know some of the people you are surrounded by.

I walk fast, I’m on a mission, I’m admiring airplanes, I’m headed to meet someone, I’ve got stuff to do! I realize being in a hurry is a cho... Read More »

Saturday at Blakesburg 2014

Saturday at Blakesburg 2014

Saturday at Blakesburg the sun came out! Try as hard as it might though, the inches of rain that fell the last couple of days are gonna take more than one semi-sunny day to dry up this soggy airport. The field remained closed most of the day but did finally open up early evening. Everyone seemed to take it in stride and spend the extra free time sloshing around visiting fellow aviators and making ... Read More »

It cracked me up and puts a whole new dose of fun in the aviators challenge version. AND, I’m not the only one being challenged here – he’s after all the rest of you aviators too! Read More »
