Greetings,

It has been a long time since the AAA/APM web site has been updated and I am certain that those who are regular visitors to this web page have been disappointed and discouraged by that lack of timely updates, as well as other problems with the web site.

I will not go into to the reasons why this has been the case as excuses will not solve these problems. However I am here to let you know that hopefully we have turned an important corner to not only keep the web site updated, in a more timely manner, but also to let you know that a complete redesign of the web site is on it's way in the not to distant future. This project is being spearheaded by our web master Aaron Klugherz with help from well known antique airplane collector Russell Williams. With their experience and foresight we look forward to the new and improved AAA/APM web site.

In the mean time please enjoy this update in the form of a video/slideshow presentation of the planes, people and events that took place during the very successful AAA/APM National Fly-in over this past Labor Day weekend. We were blessed with perfect weather during the course of the fly-in and had over 400 aircraft in attendance. At the end of the fly-in Dennis Trone's one-of-a kind OX-5 powered "Thunderbird" was voted Antique Grand Champion.

There will be more to report on the fly-in so stay tuned to this page. In the mean time if the video/slideshow presentation inspires you to want to find out more about the Antique Airplane Association and the Air Power Museum and you are not already a member of the AAA or a donor to the APM please consider joining with us to help keep the antique airplane movement viable and alive for the future.

"Keep the Antiques Flying"
