The Stearman Fly-In is Almost Here!

Well, boys and girls, it’s almost that time of year.  On August 2 and 3, the Oregon Aviation Historical Society will host the 35th Annual Jim Wright Memorial Stearman Fly-In.  While the actual attendance is never known for certain until everyone shows up, we are hoping for 25-30 vintage biplanes to grace the field.  If you haven’t seen one of these wonderful old planes up close, you really owe it to yourself to come out and take a look.  Big radial engines, open cockpits, and a visual line that takes you back to the days of barnstormers and aerobatics, these vintage aircraft were originally used to train pilots in World War II.

It’s truly a memorable experience, and an educational one at the same time.  So come on out and wander the field.  Take all the photos you like, stop into the History Center and check out the planes undergoing restoration, and step back in time for a little while.  But please, leave the four-leggeds at home.  It gets pretty warm out on the tarmac, and we wouldn’t want any furbabies to burn their feet.

Oh, and did I mention that there is no charge to come out and take a look?

See you on the 3rd!
