Blakesburg, Iowa Antique Fly-In

Jim and I made the trip up to Blakesburg, Iowa Labor Day weekend (told you I was behind!) with the 1947 Cessna 120 to the annual National Antique Aircraft Association Fly-In. This is the largest fly-in of its kind and well over 300 aircraft from all over the nation were in attendance. This was an aviation photographer's dream. Some of these planes are so rare there are only a handful still flying. Rather than trying to come up with words to describe the event, I'll let the pictures below tell the story. Jim and I pitched a tent and stayed one night....plan is to stay for two next year.
