The annual MAAG Fly-In was this past Saturday at Wiebe Field in Halstead, Kansas. The Fly-In is held in conjunction with the Old Settlers Days in Halstead. For the tenth year in the row, a flight down main street by about 16 antique and classic airplanes kicked off the parade Saturday morning. Prior to the flight, everyone enjoyed a pancake and sausage breakfast.
We had nearly 60 airplanes on the flight line this year as the weather was the best in a long time. Temperatures in the 80's and light winds beckoned over 200 people to the airport for a lot of food, fun, friendship, and flying.
Airplanes were judged in 4 categories and the winners are:
- Best Antique: Jim Wiebe - Interstate
- Best Classic: Victor Riffle - L-19
- People's Choice: Dick Curtis - Fokker Tri-plane Replica
- Best of Show: Tony Martinez - Super Cub
Thanks to everyone who worked behind the scenes to make this a success! Here are a few pictures to tantalize you into joining us next year!
