The crew from Washington State arrived today. Addison Pemberton's Boeing Model 40 was the featured ship along with Larry Tobin's mailplane Stearman C3B and Ben Scott's Stearman Speedmail. Prior to landing at Blakesburg there was a rendezvous at Harve Applegate's strip in Missouri. Six ships lined up on the grass led by Harve's Cabin Waco, what a sight!
Note the regulation Air Mail Pilot tie sported by Jay Pemberton.
About an hour after the Boeing landed at Blakesburg, Greg Herrick's Stinson and Ford Trimotors arrived near to sunset. What a great end to the day.
Thunderstorm lines and low visibility have been holding up a number of people on Thursday, but Friday's weather is predicted to be clearer. Hope to see you all there at Blakesburg!
