2008 & 2009 have been banner years for the annual AAA/APM Invitational Fly-in here at Antique Airfield over the Labor Day weekend. Near perfect weather both years plus an outstanding group of antique, classic, warbird, neo-classic and homebuilt aircraft have made for some memorable times.
But 2010 has arrived and it's time to start planning for our annual celebration of flight here at Antique Airfield.
This year we've decided to join with other aviation events in Iowa by celebrating 100 years of aviation in Iowa, "Iowa's Centenary of Flight." For a taste of what Iowa aviation can be, here's a short video preview of the Blakesburg fly-in:
Greg Herrick has promised to attend in his Fairchild FC-2
D.J. Short will be returning from Warrensburg, MO in his OX-5 powered KR-31, the 2009 AAA/APM Grand Champion Antique
Eric Presten, Schellville,CA plans to be in attendance with his Rotec radial powered, wing warped controlled Bleriot replica.
