Our 2019 Fall Fly-in was another huge success. We counted 138 attendees and 40 aircraft. It was a beautiful fall day with near perfect weather. A variety of aircraft flew in from a WWII Navy warbird to a powered paraplane. Our fly-ins keep growing each year, and this one was truly the "best so far". Members of Gilbert International Airpark (GIA) and EAA Chapter 1467 (TTF) served up a delicious meal of BBQ, fried chicken, chicken tenders, hot dogs, various vegetable dishes and casseroles, and a variety of desserts and beverages. Everyone came away well fed and happy. During lunch, GIA secretary, Donna Flanagan, awarded several prizes to attendees. We also had a cash drawing, which was won by Michael Hull from Easley, SC. Then, everyone sat around socializing, watching planes depart, and simply relaxing. Don Bell flew in from his nearby "Farm Airport" in his WWII Naval N3N warbird (pictured left above). After most of the planes had departed, Phil Brown treated the folks to a powered paraplane demonstration. One lady who had never seen one before said "That's amazing!" By all indications, everyone had a great time, and we've had many positive comments on the fly-in. As one attendee commented "We wouldn't miss this fly-in each year!". Thanks to Ron Angerman for hosting the fly-in in his hangar, all the GIA/TTF food providers/preparers, our aircraft traffic advisors, the ground crew, everyone else who assisted in numerous ways, and to those of you who came and made our fly-in a success.
