Buchan Fly-In 2016
Hurricane Mathew passed by on the East Coast of Florida resulting in a beautiful day for the fly-in on this side of the State. The breakfast tent was kept busy feeding the incoming pilots and passengers plus the visitors who came out to see the aircraft come and go. Many of the pilots spent time with the visitors, especially the kids - allowing them to sit in the cockpit and explaining how the flight controls work. The picture taking session with them in the cockpit will give them bragging rights for a long time.
