Our first Fly-in as volunteers

We've been to Fly-ins before as we worked to learn more about opportunities for youth and flying. The 80th Anniversary of the AOPA was the first Fly-In Honor and I got to participate in as volunteers with the Civil Air Patrol.

There were tons of aircraft, booths and displays all over, some amazing WWII era aircraft and a veteran's paratrooper jump. CAP cadets helped with crowd control, serving breakfast, color guard, etc. It was a fun two days' work... despite part of it getting rained out!

I was able to grab some great photos - (photos are clickable for full size)

The flyovers were awesome!
