Concrete North Cascades Fly-In Starts Friday

Just a reminder that the best little vintage fly-in the the northwest is coming up this weekend. If today’s forecast can be believed, it even looks like summer will make an appearance this weekend as well!

We’ve been busy at the museum getting airplanes ready and over the next few days we’ll be getting things ready at the airport. We’re expecting another great turnout of airplanes including several Stinsons to celebrate this year’s featured manufacturer, including the beautiful Model O. The oldest flying Boeing in the world will be back once again along with several other historic airplanes.

This year’s featured speakers will be Erik Lindbergh and Tom Casey. Mr. Lindbergh will be talking about the inspiration from his family history and how he’s trying to inspire the next generation of aviators as well as the next generation of electric airplanes. Mr. Casey will talk about his epic flight around the world on straight floats. He was the first and so far only person to circumnavigate the globe on straight floats and there are several amazing tales from the trip.

Breakfast will be served at the high school across the street starting at 7am Saturday and food will be available at the airport all day.

We’re looking forward to another great fly-in this year and hope you can join us whether you arrive by plane or by car. For more information on this year’s fly-in click here.

    I really enjoyed myself on Saturday! I’ve tried for years to make your fly-in but either was working or lived to far away.

    I particularly liked the laid back attitude of everyone I spoke with and, having spent 45 years in aviation, I truely enjoyed looking @ all the beautiful restorations and classics and talking with the owners. I was very much reminded of what Arlington was over 35 years ago.

    I fully intend to make more trips up 20 to visit as the Summer goes along, thqnks again for a great time.

    Having a great admiration of Senior Stinsons and Wacos, how about asking the PACKARD Club to drop in next year? the three seem to belong together.
