It took me 18 years to finally make it to your fly-in and all I can say is that it has been my loss not to have attended earlier. I stopped by Antique field on my way to and from Florida in my 11ac back in 1991 and have intended to come to fly in ever since. This year both work and weather cooperated for the trip. This trip was the first longer cross country in my Aeronca Sedan since I majored engine - prop -new firewall - new wiring and breakers - new exhaust system - gps - transponder.
What impressed me about fly in was the people - simple country atmosphere - being able to be relatively close to great airplanes as they flew - good food at a reasonable price - KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK AND I HOPE TO MAKE IT BACK NEXT YEAR.

The covers arrived today in perfect order. Thanks for your prompt attention and especially a hugh thanks for the great flyin. We flew 3 days from California to get there and three days to return home and it was worth every minute. Fabulous!! What will you do for an encore?

There is only one word to describe the 2008 Fly-In at Antique Airfield: PRICELESS....
Thank you so much for all your hard work. I have never seen so many happy faces in one place. Is Addison Pemberton always smiling? And Greg Herrick with his "thumbs up" after tying down the Tri-Motor????
Do you know if someone is doing a photo cd? I think it would be a great fundraiser for the AAA and people would buy them in a heartbeat. I know I would buy more than one!!! I asked Mike Gretz if he had any of the stamps that were used on the envelopes for sale, and he said to ask Brent if that might be a possibility to offer on the website in the future.
Oh, thanks for the memories.......... Rosie

Taylors and all Volunteers,
Thank you so much for the most enjoyable fly-in we have ever attended. I attended the AAA fly-in last year, fell in love with the association and joined. I vowed to return this year, with my wife and camp out for the festivities. In deed we did.
Yes, the airplanes were great, yes the preparation was great, yes the food was great and all the people from aircraft handlers to the catered food treated all of us with respect. Felt like family, thanks again!
